Based on OzHarvest’s “take what you need, give if you can” model, this trial grocery store moves beyond sell-by and use-by labels to combat food waste and its impact on the environment and to combat hunger. It’s the first of its kind in Australia. Everything is free for those who can’t afford to pay for it. Or you can donate an amount you choose.
It has opened beneath The Addison Project in Kensington, which offers pop-up accommodation for vulnerable youth. The initiative is possible because of space donated by property developer TOGA.
The Australian entrepreneur behind OzHarvest, Ronni Kahn, believes this supermarket is a step in the right direction. “Every time we save good food, we help the planet. Every time we take that food and feed hungry people, we address social issues,” says Kahn.
WHEN: Monday to Friday 10am–12pm
WHERE: 147 Anzac Parade, Kensington
