About Hidden Harvest

We are a non-for-profit initiative that aims to reduce food waste by creatively engaging and empowering our surrounding community. Creating appetising dishes out of ignored, overlooked or surplus (by-) products of our food system at pop-up events, enables us to generate discussion around food waste in informal and lively settings. Linking guest to delicious food that would not normally reach the consumers plate and the up-cycle techniques used, empowers them to make active decisions in reducing food waste in their everyday routines.

Just Eat It Soup & Film @ UOW

Did you know?

Australia’s throw away up to 20% of the food they purchase (that’s 1 out of every 5 bags of groceries!). This adds up to $8 billion worth of edible food being wasted each year.

An estimated 20-40% of fruit & vegies are rejected even before they reach the shops (for not being pretty enough).

Food waste that ends up in landfill gives off a greenhouse gas called methane (which is 25 times more potent than the exhaust from your car).
