While many of us spend the holiday season indulging in too much food, there are many in the community who don’t have enough food to get by. In November KE-ZU conducted a food drive for OzHarvest and invited our local clients and neighbouring businesses to participate.

OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food and delivering it to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country. In October, our sales reps Sara, Gen and Carlos dropped off boxes to participating firms to collect food donations from their employees. We collected the donations during November, as well as receiving an impressively large delivery from Woolworths, courtesy of the team at Studio Collective.

On 27 November we hosted a Hamper Packing night to thank people for their generosity and to help pack the hampers being donated to OzHarvest. Designers from Cox Architecture, Davenport Campbell, Futurespace, SJB Interiors and Studio Collective joined KE-ZU for the evening, as did Gabriella Dal Pozzo from OzHarvest. Gabriella spoke with guests, provided short videos and encouraged future collaborations with clients.

We received food donations for 50 boxes and are beyond grateful to our clients and neighbouring businesses for their kindness and generosity. We hope these donations made the holiday season a little easier for those in need and encourage you to also donate to OzHarvest’s Christmas Appeal. You can give money, quality food or buy meal tokens at Woolworths. For just 50 cents, OzHarvest can help put a meal on the table for those who need it most this Christmas.
