Every Monday our wonderful friends from OZHARVEST deliver a range of fresh fruit, vegetables and some protein to the Emmaus Community.
This is a wonderful service from OZHARVEST and helps Emmaus to give extra nutritional food items to our Community members
We also use this food to help with our Community luncheon every Wednesday and this not only keeps our costs down but helps all our Community members to achieve improved fresh and healthy meals
