IVECO PARTNERS WITH OZHARVEST
Founded in 2004 by social entrepreneur, Ronni Kahn AO, OzHarvest has made a significant contribution to alleviate hunger among vulnerable Australians ever since, following its four operational pillars: rescue, educate, advocate and innovate.
Today, OzHarvest serves 1,900 charities across Australia, including homelessness services, school breakfasts programs, domestic violence refuges, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs and community food pantries; each servicing community members facing food insecurity.
Delivery vehicles play a major role in distributing the rescued food to charities around the country, and to assist, OzHarvest currently operate 16 Daily vans. As part of the latest partnership, IVECO will also provide road support for these vehicles as well as the supply of 200,000 meals to people in need, through the charity’s Food Rescue program.
With their car-like driving environment, generous volume capacities, Euro6 engines, 8-speed fully automatic transmission and abundance of safety features, the IVECO Daily is comfortable, safe and easy to drive for their team of drivers who are on the road rescuing and delivering food every day.
Since its inception, Iveco Group has been driven by a determination to make a positive impact on the world and create long-term value for all its stakeholders. As a corporate citizen, Iveco Group believes in making a positive contribution to society in its countries of operation, including at community level through specific programs that also leverage the involvement of its local brand team worldwide.
