OUR MISSION

Rescue food, help people.

We give good food a second life, and get it to the people who need it most.

Our Mission

SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need across Australia. We rescue surplus food from across the retail network, and redistribute it - free of charge - to more than 1,400 local charities around the country providing food relief to people in need.

For us, it’s simple: if it’s good enough to eat, it shouldn’t go to waste.

 
 

Our Impact

In FY19, SecondBite rescued over 19.4 million kilograms of food nationally. That’s enough for more than 38 million healthy meals, or more than 100,000 meals every day. With more than 4 million Australians experiencing food insecurity over a year, there’s still so much more to be done.

SecondBite is able to provide the equivalent of 5 meals for every $1 contributed.
