Harvest Bites is a collaboration between OzHarvest and our Ambassador Chefs and hospitality partners.
Harvest Bites allows consumers and the general public to buy restaurant-quality meals in support of our local hospitality industry, suppliers and growers with all profits going directly to OzHarvest to help feed people in need.
The pilot initiative aims to provide Ambassador Chefs who are currently unable to get into their own kitchens during Covid an opportunity to come together to cook meals for customers knowing that all profits raised allows OzHarvest to deliver food to people in need. The project provides meaning and purpose to an industry that has been majorly impacted by Covid.
Each purchase from Harvest Bites will allows OzHarvest to deliver at least 40 meals to people in need.
Your meal will be pre-cooked and will need heating up only. Generally it would be ready in around 20-30 minutes – but don’t worry, we’ll include some handy instructions from the chef you can follow to make sure your meal is prepared just right!
Each week specific instructions for the meal packs will be uploaded to our Heat & Eat page

The number of meals available will vary week to week, with our website indicating when we are sold out.
For simplicity we are offering only 2 size options.
An individual / couple pack contains 2 serves. You can choose to enjoy it for dinner and have leftovers the following day! Or share it between two individuals.
