"...do something meaningful for other people."
Ronni Kahn is the Founder and CEO of OzHarvest, a non-denominational, not for profit organisation that rescues unwanted food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets, and corporate kitchens across Australia to feed vulnerable men, women, and children.
Ronni Kahn grew up in South Africa and moved to Israel where she brought up her family. She arrived in Australia as an immigrant from Israel in 1988.
Following an extensive career in running her own event management business, Ronni set out to make a difference in this world. She wanted to create an organisation with sound business ethics that would positively impact society. Her experience in the hospitality industry led her to question where all the excess food went that was the natural fall out in the food and beverage industry. When she saw that no organisation in Sydney was collecting perfectly edible perishable excess food and delivering it to people in need on a regular and professional basis she created OzHarvest.
