FEAST is a new and exciting educational program designed by OzHarvest, to empower our children to be the change makers in their communities by improving their nutritional literacy, food waste awareness and impact on the environment. We’re looking for a vibrant, motivated and passionate individual who has experience in developing marketing and communication strategies to coordinate the NSW roll out of our FEAST program.

FEAST extends beyond the classroom, as students develop the skills to become change makers in the community. It embodies the OzHarvest purpose to build a world with zero food waste and free of hunger.

OzHarvest was founded by Ronni Kahn in 2004, who noticed the huge amount of delicious consumable food discarded every day. She decided there had to be a better way. OzHarvest now rescues surplus food to feed those in need all around Australia. We also educate the public and our clients about food waste, nutrition and living a healthier lifestyle.

Since Inception OzHarvest has achieved some great milestones:

  • Over 100 million meals delivered
  • Over 35,000 tonnes of food rescued
  • Over 1000 charities helped
  • $1 = 2 meals to those in need

Led and mentored by the inspirational Ronni Kahn, we are a passionate team of people who are driven by the purpose and the desire to bring the OzHarvest effect to life everyday.

  • Teacher training records are kept up to date and completion of training is submitted to the relevant training authorities for certification

  • Demonstrated ability to manage multiple, and often complex, projects at one time
