SecondBite – Ending Waste. Ending Hunger.

There’s a food waste crisis in Australia. At the same time, millions of people are going hungry every day.

We want to fix this.

SecondBite Food Rescue Organisation Charity Vision and Purpose

Check out how your donations can help!

In 2023 we rescued 25.2 million kilograms of food to provide more than 50 million meals.

The effects of droughts, floods, fires, and the rising cost of living have caused the demand for food relief to soar. There’s still so much more to be done.

$1 = 5 meals

For every dollar you donate, we distribute enough food for up to 5 meals.
