At SecondBite, we work with over 1,300 community food programs across Australia to redistribute rescued food to those in our community who need it most.
The organisations we partner with make a real difference to people’s lives, providing food, support, hope and friendship. For as long as we are needed, we will be here.
By providing surplus fresh, nutritious food, completely free of charge, we break down barriers to accessing healthy food.
In the 2016-2017 financial year, SecondBite provided the equivalent of 22 million meals to Australians doing it tough. Our agency partners provide programs as unique as the individuals that seek assistance. From pantry style services, to community meals, soup kitchens and emergency relief hampers, they typically offer more than just a meal. Connecting people to their communities, linking in services and providing a safe space are just some of the ways that our partners help their recipients get back on their feet.
With around 3.6 million people experiencing food insecurity in the course of a year in Australia, hunger doesn't discriminate. The reasons behind this are complicated, and we will continue to actively support the right to a dignified existence for all Australians.
