SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need across Australia. We do this by rescuing and redistributing surplus fresh food, building community capacity in food skills and nutrition and advocating for an end to food insecurity.



SecondBite simply would not exist without an amazing team of over 630 volunteers! If you would like to give something special back to your local community and have a positive impact on the environment, become an active part of the SecondBite Team and sign up as a volunteer. There are many ways to get involved:

  • Join a team collecting surplus food from your local markets
  • Assist in one of our warehouses, sorting food, preparing deliveries and general cleaning
  • Deliver food directly to a community food program in your own vehicle
  • Share your admin skills with us in one of our offices.
  • Help us with fundraising events and activities
