We have been given the amazing opportunity to help provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need.
Coles and Second Bite do this by rescuing food that is destined for landfill and to give it to people in need, free of charge.
The ethos being if it is good enough to eat, it shouldn't go to waste!
This Program is in alignment with our centres values and existing community projects.
At this stage we will be operating Second Bite on a Monday and Wednesday with the collection of food from Kincumber Coles at around 9am.
We will be having a morning tea here at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre on Friday the 8th of September at 10.00am for people interested in Volunteering to discuss the program and fill in Volunteer paperwork. Whilst it will be lovely to meet you at the morning tea we understand that people have other commitments and are busy so you can call us on 4363 1044 to organise an individual time to meet and greet and fill in volunteer paperwork.
Please ring reception on 4363 1044 to RSVP for the morning tea and leave your name and contact details!

A very big welcome to Rob Watson!
The team at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre are very excited to welcome on board Rob Watson, who has joined Colette Baron in the role of Manager.
A MASSIVE thank you to Mars Foods for sending out their wonderful staff to volunteer at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre for their Community Building Day!
Mars Volunteers did some great work in our Community Garden and kindly donated some much needed items.
To top it off they even supplied and cooked an amazing BBQ for the Staff and Volunteers at the centre.
A great day was had by all and we are so grateful for the help and generosity of the Mars Foods crew!
The Brekky Club at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre is the place to be! Run by volunteers and youth workers, it's a warm and welcoming environment giving school-goers a kick start to their day, while fostering community togetherness and interaction. Watch this little video kindly created by Bank of Goodwill and The Bendigo Bank, to find out more about this morning hub, and get in touch if you or your business would like to get involved.
We held the first event at The Neon Garage, a funky new venue in South Kincumber and Brad, Bianca and Kaz did a great job of providing a fantastic space to hold our first event. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided lots of support. Definitely a venue to check out if you are looking to hire something different for a party or function.
A new business The Big Meringue, with fantastic chef PaulieMac provided the very Hestonish food that was a very delicious treat.
We would like to say a big thank you to Kincumber Rotary for their kind donation of $200 towards the night, which helped with the cost of the evening, they are a great community organisation.
Also Kincumber Hotel who gave us a discount on the wines for the night. Also Six String Brewery who provided the beer and lemonade, also at reduced cost.
We would also Mitre 10 who are also a great community minded business, and supported the evening even though unable to be there this time.
We feel that it is important for us all to work together and support our local community and local businesses, so that our local area can be a well-resourced, safe and happy place to be for all of our members.
We cannot run this fanastic program without the support of our local community, and we are very lucky to have the support of great local businesses and organisations. It currently costs approx $100 per week to run this program and we feed an average of 650 students of Kincumber High School each month of school terms.
Some of the fantastic organisations that support it are:
Roundabout Op Shop
Broadwater Court Management
Broadwater Court Residents Group
MacMasters Ladies Social Fundraising Group
Pandora Women’s Committee
We would also like to give a huge callout to our amazing volunteers who keep this program running three mornings per week.
