SecondBite  Not-for-profit organisation committed to rescuing and redistributing nutritious, fresh food to people all across Aus. $1=5 meals. ✌🏼️🍎

What an achievement! Thank you to our Community Connect agencies, a massive thank you to all of our dedicated and passionate SecondBite crew members that have had a hand in ensuring that the Community Connect wheels keep turning and making sure that those who need food, get food. #foodrelief #foodrescue #secondbite #2018

This is our Thursday crew of volunteers at our WA warehouse. After a hard morning of sorting and packing they all sit down to a morning tea they have all chipped in to make. Collectively, we have over 40 years of volunteering service from this dedicated bunch. We are so thankful of their ongoing support to our organisation and appreciate all of the time they give. #secondbite #foodrelief #foodrescue #volunteers

In October 2016, SecondBite announced a unique partnership with Social Enterprise, PonyUp for Good, with whom we share values centred around waste reduction and a better use of resources. This week we are proud to announce this exciting partnership has supported us to deliver a key milestone of 250,000 fresh meals!
PonyUp for Good works with corporate partners including Australia Post, Telstra and Red Energy and finds value in their decommissioned technology, extending its lifespan by cleaning and remarketing it. PonyUp’s vision is to rescue 1 million kilos of decommissioned technology and use its residual value to deliver 1 million fresh meals to people in need by donating 50% of their profits to us here at SecondBite.
To date, PonyUp for Good have collected 108,783 kilos of technology and found reuse channels for 42% which has enabled them to reach this first major milestone. It is a truly unique and exciting way of driving environmental and community change and to extract value from waste.
We are delighted to be their exclusive charity partner and look forward to partnering with them long into the future.

SecondBite were thrilled to receive a delivery of donation boxes today! These are the result of generous contributions from Coles Online customers and will be distributed to many of our agency partners across the state. #secondbite #foodrelief #colesonline #donations #Christmas

Many of our agencies tell us stories of the support we collectively provide to individuals and families - whether it’s food for a community lunch or dinner, or a hamper of grocery items to help the family cook a dinner in their home.
When trying to keep the family together or when the elderly or vulnerable are prioritising rent and bills, food is often the first thing to be sacrificed and increasingly we are supporting people who live in our streets not on our streets.
The holiday period can be a particularly tough time for those needing our help and, as many services close down, SecondBite continues to work to ensure that wherever possible food gets to those who need it.
So as we think about Christmas, the gifts we will share with loved ones and the role that food plays in our celebrations we call on you again to consider those less fortunate than ourselves.
For every $1 you donate, we will provide five fresh, nutritious meals to the vulnerable in this season of goodwill.
Please help us care for those who need a helping hand this Christmas and donate generously today by clicking on the Donate button on our homepage.

Thank you so much to Belmay Primary School who made a donation to SecondBite with funds raised from their wonderful school community! Your support is much appreciated! This is Lyndon, our WA State Manger being presented with the donation from amazing Belmay Primary School students!

Thanks to a brilliant new partnership between @ponyupforgood, Red Energy and @lumoenergy , a 20,426kg surplus of old electronic devices has been turned into the equivalent of 46,905 fresh healthy meals for SecondBite to distribute around the country.

Pony Up for Good work with SXiQ to re-market and recycle old technology including computers, laptops and monitors, cables and printers no longer used by Red Energy and Lumo Energy. Pony Up for Good then donate 50% of their profits from the resale of this technology to SecondBite.

To date, this partnership has provided over 49,900 fresh, healthy meals for people across the country experiencing food insecurity.
Thank you to Pony Up for Good, SXIQ, Red Energy and Lumo Energy for your generous support of SecondBite and creating positive environmental and social outcomes important for all Australians.

Thank you to @grilldburgers Northland for including us in your Local Matters campaign! We are so pleased to have the support of our local community and acknowledgement for our work. Over the month of November, generous Grilld Northland customers filled the Secondbite donation jar 4 times with their tokens resulting in us receiving a $300 donation. This money will allow us to rescue and redistribute enough food to provide 1500 meals for those who need it this Christmas. #localmatters #grilld #donations #secondbite #foodrescue

We are ecstatic to announce that the Christmas Appeal at @liquorlandau @vintagecellars and First Choice Liquor stores has resulted in a whopping total of $549,831! This will help SecondBite to provide 2.7 million meals to those who need it most this Christmas and beyond. The support shown for this campaign from a store level has been amazing and we are so grateful. Thank you to all involved and for everyone who made a donation!
