OzHarvest Brisbane is a charity program that works in conjunction with airlines in Australia to collect untouched and uneaten plane food to provide meal donations to those in need. The food is collected from the airlines and repurposed, rather than thrown away. The meals provide nutritious pre-prepared foods to consumers that are unable to afford them otherwise.

The charity is connected to 2000 different flight organizations which gives the brand access to between 400 and 900 pounds of food from the Brisbane Airport. The food are relatively nutritional meals containing each of the four food groups that are left over after flights across the globe. Rather than toss the fresh meals, OzHarvest Brisbane donates them providing a healthy source of food for those in need.
