Hidden Harvest is moving online for the duration of the coronavirus crisis.
The not-for-profit organisation turned five in April but is no longer able to host more physical events because of COVID-19 restrictions.
But it will continue to educate people about food waste with food saving tips, messages of inspiration and workshops.
Community engagement coordinator Emily Duncan has been working around the clock with a team of enthusiastic volunteers to develop online content such as blogs and interactive resources that can be accessed remotely during social isolation.
Hidden Harvest is launching a new website as well as an online store where merchandise can be purchased.
Vouchers are also available which can be redeemed at events later in the year.
"It's at a time like this that small organisations like Hidden Harvest are most vulnerable," Ms Duncan said.
"With the launching of our online operations we hope our community can take the chance to still support the work we're doing".
And that will help Hidden Harvest return to normal operations when COVID-19 social distancing restrictions allow.
Volunteers Jacqui Gordon and Rae Hunt have developed a series of unique virtual cooking workshops that will be live streamed over Twitch and Instagram.
Illawarra residents are invited to join in the cooking from home.
"We hope that these virtual sessions will continue to provide people with inspiration for waste-free cooking, and will allow us to continue the educational aspect of Hidden Harvest from home," Ms Gordon said.
