It is alarming that over 1.2 million people in Australia do not have enough to eat, whilst at the same time $5.2 billion of surplus fresh food and produce is wasted every year.
SecondBite’s commitment and endeavours are to ensure that fresh food does not go to waste but instead to people who really need it, to make a positive difference to their health, wellbeing and social inclusion.
In 2102, SecondBite redistributed 3 million kg of quality surplus fresh food, enough for agencies and community food programs across Australia to provide 6 million hearty nutritious meals to vulnerable men, women and their children.
In addition to sourcing and delivering healthy, nutritious food, our Research and Development department continues to focus on developing sustainable solutions to achieve our long term goal of eliminating hunger in Australia.
Through our Food Angels program, SecondBite enables vulnerable people become food independent and have the knowledge, skills and confidence to access and prepare affordable, healthy fresh food for themselves and their families.
SecondBite programs also build the knowledge and skills of community food program staff and volunteers to help them maximise the benefits of the food they receive from SecondBite for their clients.
Every Entertainment Book sold enables SecondBite to source and redistribute even more healthy nutritious food to make a positive difference to more and more people in need across Australia!
CONGRATULATIONS AND A BIG THANK YOU TO DIETITIAN CONNECTION AND MEMBERS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND INTEREST IN THE WORK OF SECONDBITE!
