Who We Are

HIDDEN HARVEST IS A VOLUNTEER-FUELLED, NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANISATION BASED IN THE ILLAWARRA REGION.

Together with an amazing team of passionate volunteers, we combat climate change by upskilling communities with the tools and forks to tackle food waste and serve up a more sustainable future.

Changing food waste behaviours for the better requires an ongoing conversation in the community about our wasteful relationship with food. We spark these conversations at our exciting events and workshops. Catered with rescued food from local growers and sellers, we provide our community with an opportunity to see, feel and taste how delicious a sustainable food future can be.

Hidden Harvest Who We Are

THE START OF OUR FOOD WASTE JOURNEY

When Berbel Franse left Australia to work in Ghana, West Africa, she witnessed large amounts of food being wasted before it made it to the markets due to lacking logistics infrastructure. However, in Ghana, where a large proportion of people are malnourished, once the produce did make it to markets nothing went to waste.

 

Upon returning to Australia, Berbel realised that despite capable logistics infrastructure, Australian consumers waste roughly the same amount of food! This realisation inspired Berbel to found Hidden Harvest in 2015. As a volunteer-fueled organisation, Hidden Harvest celebrates the opportunity we have as a community to combat climate change through food behaviour.
