Ronni Kahn on finding her calling in 'A Repurposed Life'

Play
Read more
As the owner of a successful events company, throwing away huge volumes of leftover food at the end of the day came with the territory. But when Ronni Kahn hit midlife, she found herself no longer able to turn a blind eye to her food waste problem. Hand delivering the untouched food to homeless shelters around Sydney became her renegade solution. Little did she know that fixing her small problem at work would lead her to unlock a hidden purpose at the very core of her inner life.

Now founder and CEO of the food rescue organisation OzHarvest, Ronni leads hundreds of staff and thousands of volunteers with the goal to nourish Australia. She serves in an advisory capacity to government and is an instrumental leader in changing federal laws to improve social justice and environmental policies.

'A Repurposed Life' is the story of how Ronni found her voice, her heart and her deepest calling. From her early years growing up under the brutal system of apartheid South Africa, to a socialist commune in Israel, Ronni finally settled in Australia to discover a profound new way of living. Shared with the humour, warmth and energy that have made her an internationally renowned keynote speaker, this heartfelt exploration of the choices that define us will speak to anyone seeking a more passionate expression of being alive.

In this podcast, Ronni joins Greg Dobbs to chat about finding her calling in OzHarvest, and the process of co-writing the memoir with her daughter-in-law, Jessica Chapnik Kahn.

My guest on this episode is the fabulous Ronni Kahn, founder and CEO of OzHarvest, the pioneering food rescue organization in Australia. Ronni was recently featured in the film Food Fighter, a documentary that followed her journey to build OzHarvest and replicate it around the world.

Ronni joined me to talk about how we can find purpose in our food system and our lives, shared some of the vast leadership experience she has gained setting up OzHarvest, and offers inspiration for how we can all make a contribution to a better world, and food system, each day.

  • Ronni’s insights into leading a purpose driven organization
  • How to build a volunteer community that is engaged 
  • The role of gratitude in managing the ups and downs of impact oriented work
  • The importance of mindset and attitude as a basis for leading change
  • How OzHarvest has faced COVID 19 
  • The importance of advocacy and lobbying for policy change as a key role to create lasting impact at the root of the issue
  • The dual issues of food waste and hunger and how to tackle both
  • The role of education to help us really value food and understand the true cost
  • Ronni’s insight into how her work has influenced how she eats and leads on a daily basis
  • How she stumbled onto her purpose in the food system and how it has changed her life

To round out the season Rachel Corbett is talking to a woman who is tackling the massive issue of food waste.  Founder of OzHarvest, Ronni Kahn.

Ronni was working in events when she saw how much perfectly good food was thrown out because of laws that prevented it from being donated.

Instead of getting frustrated she decided to do something about it and started OzHarvest.  A food rescue organisation, that collects food from commercial outlets and delivers it to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need.

Ronni is on a mission to halve food waste by 2020 so how is she doing that?
