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.



Over 2 million Australians are living in poverty. Their daily access to fresh, nutritious food is either impossible or an uncertain struggle. At the same time, it is estimated that over $8 billion of food goes to waste in our abundant nation each year.

Now imagine waking up every morning to a better story – a story where fresh, nutritious food is not wasted and is easily accessed by people in need.

And you are part of this story…

Can’t see how your support alone could possibly make any difference?

Frustrated because you’d like to help but can’t see how you could manage?

Then workplace giving is for you!

It’s easy, powerful and adds up to impactful change – most importantly, you know that while you’re busy working, you’re also helping vulnerable Australians living in poverty and disadvantaged circumstances access fresh, nutritious food, making a real difference to their health, well-being and social inclusion.

Workplace giving to SecondBite uses existing payroll and income tax systems to maximise your support, enabling you to make a difference that is real and bigger than you could imagine…

  • donate from your pre-tax pay (you receive and instant tax deduction)
  • employer’s program will often match your donation
  • your donation is up to 3 times more effective than if you gave the post-tax equivalent
  • your workplace giving support strengthens SecondBite’s capacity and sustainability
  • every pay day, you are ensuring more and more fresh food is no longer wasted but instead goes to people who really need it.

Your pre-tax gift every pay day costs you less and adds up to more…

Even if your employer doesn’t match donations, your $10 contribution still enables us to do more, providing 25 healthy meals to people in need who would otherwise go without.

Busy employees and employers giving just a small amount to SecondBite through workplace giving programs can accelerate positive change in our community, realising a better story for our abundance of fresh food in Australia and - most importantly - a better story for the 2 million Australians today who struggle every day to access fresh, nutritious food.

Imagine waking up tomorrow morning knowing you are part of this story.
