LOCAL charity UCare Gawler will soon
have more fresh fruit, vegetables and
produce to hand out to those in need.
A number of local businesses have teamed
up to take part in a project aimed at helping
those less fortunate across the Barossa and
The arrangement, which has been 12 months
in the making, will involve leftover produce
from the Barossa Farmers' Market being
provided to the food rescue charity, REAP
As of this weekend, at the end of each
market day, store-holders will make excess
produce available at a collection area, where
it will be picked up for distribution by local
business people to UCare in Gawler.
UCare Gawler co-ordinator Raelene Benier
said produce will be used in a multitude of
ways, handed out as is to low-income families,
cooked into meals for the homeless and handed
out as part of their school breakfast program.
"We will be using it for parcels and putting
it out for our clients, but we also provide
lunches on Wednesday for people living
on the street so they can have a hot meal,
as well as older people who don't cook any
more," she said.
"This will be really fantastic to have that
extra fruit and veg, and if there is any fruit
that keeps until the Thursday, we will
deliver that to local schools.
"I'm excited about it."
The project was initiated by Chris Secomb
and Dianne Fraser from Aussie Home Loans
Brokers in the Barossa Valley, as well as Liz
Marslen, owner of Professionals in Gawler,
and Corey Miller of Adelaide Plains and
The group will take turns to collect the
produce from the market in their cars and
bring it to Gawler.
Mrs Fraser said she is thrilled to be involved
with OzHarvest in its first initiative in the
"I am very grateful for the involvement of
the local business people and would like to
invite other businesses in the Barossa to get
involved and help the less fortunate in our
community," she added.
Mrs Marslen said she saw a television
program about OzHarvest six years ago and
has always had a passion to be involved in
the worthwhile organisation ever since.
"We are keen to use this opportunity to get
involved with OzHarvest locally and look
forward to many years of helping such a
great cause," she said.
OzHarvest has been delivering food to
Gawler since February 2013, working with
UCare as well as The Salvation Army,
Fred's Van and St Vincent de Paul.
Gawler UCare helps more than 8000 people
in need, receiving one tonne of salvaged
food from OzHarvest per week.
