The major brokerage has announced that it has extended its partnership with food rescue charity OzHarvest until 2020.

Aussie first signed its national partnership agreement with OzHarvest in 2016 and has reportedly helped the charity deliver more than one million meals to vulnerable Australians through a mix of corporate donations and fundraising activities by Aussie brokers and team members across the country.

For example, since the partnership began, more than 350 Aussie brokers and team members have participated in OzHarvest’s Cooking for a Cause program, where corporate teams transform rescued food into gourmet meals that are then delivered to the charities.

The brokerage has now announced that it will extend the partnership with the food rescue organisation for a further two years.

The CEO of Aussie, James Symond, commented: “I’m a firm believer that if you can help, you should — so signing on to support and work with OzHarvest for another two years was a no-brainer.

“OzHarvest helps Aussies at the grassroots level and the contribution we make is so tangible. We’re literally helping to feed people who might otherwise go without, and I am delighted that our team has backed the charity with such enthusiasm and commitment to date.”

Commenting on the extension to the partnership, Ronni Kahn, founder and CEO of OzHarvest, said: “We are so lucky to have such amazing support from like-minded partners and the team at Aussie ha[s] blown us away with [its] enthusiasm.

“Working with national organisations who support our vision to create a better world, and can provide crucial funding, helps us make a bigger impact and achieve our purpose to Nourish Our Country.”

She added: “The Aussie team has made a major commitment to fundraising through numerous activities, including Night Noodle Markets, bake-offs, donation collections at Aussie retail stores, Christmas hamper drives and the CEO Cook-Off.”
