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.

Check out how your donations can help!

In FY22 we rescued and distributed 23.8 million kilos of food to provide more than 47.5 million meals.

The effects of drought, floods and COVID-19 in recent times have seen the demand for food relief soar. There’s so much more to be done.

$1 = 5 meals

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