Fundraise for us – SecondBite

Fundraise for us


You too can help SecondBite by fundraising for us.

The farmers, manufacturers and retailers we work with, donate their surplus and unsold food to us for free. However, we rely on donations from our generous supporters to rescue and distribute the food to help feed people in need across Australia.

We use the donations we receive to run an efficient food collection and distribution service: for vehicles like trucks and vans to transport the food (plus fuel, vehicle servicing etc.); warehouses to store the food; equipment like forklifts and pallets to move the food; as well as systems and people. Every dollar you donate enables us to collect and distribute up to 2.5kgs of food. We allow for 500 grams of food per meal: making this $1 donated = enough food for up to 5 meals.


There are many ways that you can fundraise for SecondBite. Some popular fundraising ideas include:

  • Holding a fundraiser at your workplace
  • Holding a morning tea or meal with your church
  • Having a ‘bake sale’ or cookie/cake stall at your school
  • Having a ‘gold coin donation’ free dress day at school
  • Having a fitness challenge at your sport club
  • Participating in a fun run and getting friends and family to sponsor you
  • Holding a movie night
  • Or simply just doing something that you’re passionate about

Whatever ways you choose to fundraise for SecondBite, have fun and spread the word about ending waste and ending hunger.

How Cavendish Road High School is fundraising for SecondBite


Fundraising doesn’t always have to mean raising money for SecondBite. Cavendish Road High School in Holland Park, Queensland holds an annual can food drive for SecondBite. Students collect cans and jars of food such as veggies, tuna, baked beans and sauces,  for SecondBite again this year. In 2020 the school collected 24,000 cans which were then distributed by SecondBite to communities in need in Queensland.
Cans and jars of foods are great as we can store, move and distribute them easily without them spoiling. Our food charity partners can also store them easily and use as needed to supplement the fresh produce that we distribute. This makes food and meal planning easier and more efficient too.
