Mission Statement

Our Mission is to be the partner of choice for the rescue of good food destined for waste, and to redirect it to community organisations across the country, helping to reduce food insecurity and hunger. We take our mantra of 'Ending Waste. Ending Hunger’ seriously by: Helping to strengthen Australia’s food relief sector by providing food completely free of charge to our charity partners Supporting food relief agencies to meet the immediate needs of their clients Working with primary producers, retailers and manufacturers to make the most of opportunities to donate surplus and unsold food SecondBite sees a future where primary production, manufacturing, retail, logistics and the community support sectors work in harmony to support those in our community who are facing hunger and food insecurity.

Description

We provide food for FREE We rescue edible surplus food from growers, manufacturers and retailers and distribute it free of charge to over 1,100 charities and not-for-profit organisations to feed Aussies in need. Our partners use the rescued food for nourishing meals, emergency relief packages, community pantries and much more. The need for more food is great One in five Aussies are affected by food insecurity and don’t have enough safe, nutritious food. This can badly affect their physical, emotional and social wellbeing. SecondBite makes sure that good food is getting to people who need it most, rather than to landfill. $1 donated provides enough food for up to 5 meals SecondBite is the most efficient national food rescue organisation in Australia. Our combined Community Connect and Direct Delivery models of food rescue and distribution keeps our operating costs low. This means that for every $1 you donate, we distribute enough food for up to 5 meals.
