Major brokerage celebrates 20 years of food donations

by Annie Kane4 minute read

Aussie Home Loans has revealed that it has helped provide food for those in need for the past 20 years and this year helped provide more than 10,000 meals through OzHarvest.

According to the major brokerage, Aussie’s team members and mortgage brokers this year prepared over 200 food hampers, donated money and provided almost 400 premium leg hams to OzHarvest charities, providing over 5,500 meals.

In addition, for the third year running, Aussie chief executive officer James Symond donated an additional 5,000 meals on behalf of Aussie’s industry and business partners. 

Mr Symond commented: “We’re really proud to be celebrating 20 years of supporting Australians through food donations, after starting with one charity in 1998 with the Exodus Foundation’s Christmas Day lunch in Sydney. 


“Our whole team has embraced our Christmas initiatives and our partnership with OzHarvest, now in its third year, and participate in these activities with genuine enthusiasm,” he added. 

OzHarvest founder and CEO Ronni Kahn said, “We love the great contribution the Aussie team make to OzHarvest each year, especially at Christmas when there are so many people struggling to put food on the table. The hams are always a big hit with the charities we support.” 

Many of Aussie’s 220 stores across Australia have been participating in Christmas food drives for OzHarvest and making donations to their local charities.

OzHarvest is a food rescue organisation that collects more than 180 tonnes of quality excess food from food donors Australia-wide each week, delivering to more than 1,300 charities and providing much-needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children.
