Help OzHarvest SA deliver another 200,000 meals to people in need. Join the Great Food Rescue Race!
After two successful years, the Great Food Rescue Race will be back in Adelaide on Friday 3 November 2017!
This unique fundraising event sees corporate teams of five compete in a series of cooking, nutrition and food-rescue themed challenges across the CBD, celebrating Adelaide’s food culture and raising funds to help OzHarvest rescue and deliver more quality nutritious food to the local community.
Join us for an afternoon of delicious food, team building and fun to help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people in greater Adelaide!
What is the Great Food Rescue Race?
The Great Food Rescue Race is a unique fast-paced race across Adelaide’s CBD embracing food, community, teamwork and fun, whilst raising funds for OzHarvest’s South Australian food rescue operations.
Teams of five compete against each other in a series of cooking, nutrition and food-rescue themed challenges between Adelaide’s iconic food landmarks and charitable agencies, with local chefs and food identities making (surprise) appearances during the day.
Now in its third year, the event highlights the important message about food waste and food security, including the challenges faced by people in need and how individuals can make a difference and give back to the community.
The collective fundraising goal this year is $100,000, which always sparks healthy competition amongst teams and their supporting businesses! Teams are encouraged to raise $2,500 per team of 5. That’s only $500 per person! OzHarvest SA provides heaps of tips and tricks to help teams achieve this. You can find them here!
We are thrilled that Carbon Neutral Adelaide has come on board as our major sponsor for the Great Food Rescue Race 2017.

We would also like to say a big thank you to Adelaide Central Market, Botanic Garden, COAL Cellar + Grill, Hither & Yon, JP Media and Santos for supporting this impactful event.
Every $1 = 2 meals OzHarvest can rescue from going to landfill and deliver to people in need.
