Our impact

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

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. Demand for accessible, culturally appropriate 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.

With a fifteen year history of rescuing food from waste and redistributing it to local food agencies helping people in need, at SecondBite we work to help solve both of these persistent problems.

Each year, we are adapting to better meet the evolving challenges of food waste and food insecurity in this country. Integral to SecondBite’s model is a commitment to distribute all food completely free of charge to its food relief agency network and the people they support.
