SecondBite Community Connect™ is an innovative model of food rescue that facilitates the redistribution of surplus fresh food from local food donors directly to Charity Partners. This sustainable and award-winning program was created in 2009 to enable food rescue in outer urban, regional and remote contexts and support local community partnerships.
