Waterloo Market

A safe space for food, comfort and hope

The OzHarvest Market in Waterloo continues to be a regular source of comfort in these truly hard times. Our team of incredible volunteers now welcome over 1,800 customers every week. The impact of the rising cost of living has meant more new people are coming to the Market, feeling desperate and sometimes even ashamed as it’s their first time asking for help.

Every week we provide fresh produce, pantry staples and cooked meals, but our Market is so much more than food. It’s a safe place where kind words, conversations, a smile, and human connection goes a long way.

Our goal is to make people smile! Razia never used to speak, she just pointed at the food.  Now she greets me with a hug and a chat, she says ‘you are my family, my sister.’
