OzHarvest app

Food rescue organisation OzHarvest has launched an app so businesses in regional areas will know where to send their surplus food. 

OzHarvest's bright yellow food vans are a familiar sight in Australian cities where they have been ferrying food from business to charities and the hungry since 2004. It is not cost effective for the vans to operate in smaller regional towns, so business can now link directly with charities using the app.

The app has been trialled with supermarkets and bakeries across almost every state and could potentially support an extra 600 charities and rescue a further 2,000 tonnes of food from going to landfill - which translates to six million meals.
