SYDNEY

SecondBite has partnered with long-time charity partner ‘Our Big Kitchen’, based in Bondi, in the Meals that Matter volunteer program. For Sydney-based organisations looking for a team building event with a difference, this program offers an engaging experience, focused on giving back to the community. 

A typical session involves team members working together to prepare and cook 200 meals for individuals and families in need. Your staff will learn about food insecurity in Australia, the work SecondBite does to address this, the people we support, and will share a meal that they have created together. This 3 hour cooking program costs $1700 for groups of up to twenty people. For teams greater than twenty, there is an additional charge of $80 per person. The program cost is regarded as a donation for tax purposes.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES IN OTHER STATES ARE UNAVAILABLE AT PRESENT, HOWEVER IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
