Get Involved


Our mission is to lead a nationwide food rescue and recipient network that is increasingly efficient, effective, and reliable for all partners.

We rely on the generous support of our food and financial donors, volunteers and charity partners to enable us to rescue food and distribute it to those who need it most. Without our food donors, there would be no food for us to rescue. Without our financial donors, volunteers and charity partners, we wouldn’t have the resources and means to rescue and distribute the food.


We need your support now more than ever


Food insecurity and food waste in Australia are a daily reality, largely hidden from view. The past couple of years has been a trying time for Australia’s food relief sector and the people they serve. Many have felt the effects of drought, floods, bushfires and Covid-19, often in combination.

The demand for food relief across Australia is on the increase, and food relief agencies are feeling the pressure. At the same time, an extraordinary amount of edible food continues to be wasted across the food supply chain.

You can support SecondBite’s work to rescue and distribute food completely free of charge to food relief agencies to meet the immediate needs of hungry Aussies.

The support that we need most are:

  • Quality, large volume food donations. This could include fresh produce and packaged foods.
  • Financial donations – every $1 you donate enables us to distribute enough food for up to 5 meals.
  • Volunteers – to help us sort and pack foods

Join us today in ending waste and ending hunger.

Why support us?

SecondBite has a fifteen year history of efficiently rescuing food from waste and redistributing it to local charities helping people in need.

Each year, we are adapting to better meet the evolving challenges of food waste and food insecurity in Australia. We encourage and give food producers and retailers the opportunity to reduce potential food waste.

Integral to our model is a commitment to distribute all food completely free of charge to the food relief agency network and the people they support.

SecondBite is the most efficient food rescue organisation in Australia. For every $1 donated, we rescue and distribute enough food for up to 5 meals.
