After being forced to close its doors temporarily amid the coronavirus pandemic, Dreamworld and WhiteWater World have donated hundreds of perishable food items to help feed Gold Coasters in need.
The theme park called in OzHarvest to collect 755kg of food that would otherwise go to waste, including milk, fruit, vegetables, juice and pasta.
The amount of food donated is equivalent to 2,265 meals.

Michelle Erasmus, General Manager Park Operations, said the donated food will help to provide a much needed meal for many locals.
“We wanted to be sure we were being responsible with how we were ceasing operations,” she said.
“We took the opportunity to consolidate all of our perishable items across the property, and we reached out to Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, OzHarvest, who came to pick it up.
“OzHarvest donated this to CityCare, which is a charity that prepares food and meals for people in desperate situations.”
