Melbourne Health

Reducing hunger and food waste in our community

 Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Health category

Acknowledging the impacts of food waste, Melbourne Health’s surplus patient meals are collected daily by OzHarvest, who deliver them to community food hub, Northpoint Centre, for processing and distribution, helping community members in need.

Since February 2018, over 4,000 meals per month have been redistributed, removing nine tonnes of food from landfill per year and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 17 tonnes of carbon emissions per year, embracing the principles of environmental, economic and social sustainability.
