Second Bite

The Second Bite Program

SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need.

We do this by stopping good food from going to waste. We rescue edible, nutritious food that was heading for landfill and give it to people in need, free of charge. For us, it’s simple: if it’s good enough to eat, it shouldn’t go to waste.

In Australia, we throw away an unbelievable amount of perfectly edible food every day.

At the same time, a growing number of Australians find themselves struggling to make ends meet – two million Australians find themselves unable to afford enough food to feed themselves or their families. The reasons behind this are complicated, but the bottom line isn’t – in short: we throw good food away while people go hungry. That doesn’t make sense.

SecondBite redistributes surplus fresh food to community food programs around Australia. Food is donated by farmers, wholesalers, markets, supermarkets, caterers and events. This high-quality surplus food is redistributed to community food programs that support people in need  from all walks of life.

With the assistance of Coles @ Kincumber the Second Bite program will be starting at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre Monday the 25th and 27th of September!
