Gifts in Will Charity Bequest to SecondBite

Leave a Gift in your Will

Thank you for considering SecondBite as part of your important legacy.


Leave a charity bequest in your Will and help end waste and end hunger. A Will allows you to specify exactly how you would like to provide for your family, friends and causes important to you. 

By leaving a Gift to SecondBite in your Will, you are making a promise to help future generations of vulnerable Australians. Your gift will help SecondBite continue to provide quality and nutritious food to Australia’s most vulnerable for years to come. 

A Lasting Legacy

Prominent Australian businessman and philanthropist, Frank Costa AO, passed away aged 83 in 2021. He purchased a produce business in the late 1950s, which is now the largest privately owned grower, packager, marketer, distributor and exporter of fresh fruit and vegetables and grains in the Southern Hemisphere. A passionate family man, Frank lived a life of service to the community, and his passionate advocacy for the welfare of others will live on, thanks to a generous $1 million donation to SecondBite’s Future Trust, ensuring it will have an impact in perpetuity.

Considering leaving a Gift in your Will?

Everyone over the age of 18 can make a Will. 

A Will is the only way to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes. A bequest is a clause within a Will relating to a particular gift or share of your assets, that you specifically wish to make – including a gift to SecondBite. 

Every bequest, however small or large, is gratefully received and allows us to deliver on our vision of an Australia without hunger or waste.  

There are many ways to include gifts in wills to charities, depending on your circumstances and preferences, including: 

  • Whole or a part of your Estate 
  • Percentage of your Estate 
  • Fixed amount 
  • Residuary gift 
  • A specific asset 

Legal advice and process

Making or updating a Will can seem daunting but the process can be straightforward. There are two main ways you can include SecondBite in your Will:  

Speak with your solicitor or legal advisor 

Your solicitor or legal advisor can help you draw up a Will or make a change to an existing one. There is a suggestion below to share with your legal advisor. You will need to edit the relevant sections to best suit your gift and wishes. 


“I give and bequeath the sum of $ _______________________ (or) __________ % of my estate, (or) residue of my estate, (or) property or assets as follows _______________________ to the SECONDBITE FUTURE TRUST (ABN 57 731 316 017) of 93 Northern Road, Heidelberg West in the State of Victoria for its general purposes, and I DIRECT that a receipt from the Secretary or Treasurer for the time being of the said organisation shall be a sufficient discharge to my trustees.” 

If you choose to notify SecondBite of your pledge, you will join our exclusive Feed the Future membership program.
