1 Million Meals to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities by 2020
SecondBite’s 1 Million Meals pilot program was launched in March 2018, with the purpose of rescuing and distributing surplus edible food to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, to support families and individuals experiencing food insecurity.
SecondBite is well on its way to reach a goal of 1,000,000 meals by 2020. Our performance to date has been impactful and well received, with enough food for more than 818,000 meals provided, in partnership with over 40 food relief agencies.
“SecondBite deliveries have allowed us to deliver regular, healthy, wholesome food hampers to our local Aboriginal community. These free hampers have been so well received, and have put many smiles on many faces. We love working in our community, and are thankful for all the support we receive from SecondBite to help us promote healthy lifestyle choices for our community.” - Amy
To celebrate the richness and diversity of Australia’s Indigenous cultures, SecondBite welcomed submissions for an art competition around the theme “connection”. The winning artwork was created by Silvia Jones-Terare: ‘This story represents many different countries that all our many tribes are from: Water, Bush, Desert. While we are different, we are connected through family, stories, sharing, teachings, learnings and much more. Through this we come together as one.’
