OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia that collects quality excess food from more than 2,000 commercial outlets and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to more than 800 charities. OzHarvest was instrumental in getting the "Civil Liberties Amendment Act" passed, which protects donors from liability.
