SecondBite’s ambassador Matt Preston helps provide free meals to international students
SecondBite is on target to deliver 2,000 meals to international students at the University of Melbourne who have been facing tough times during COVID.
SecondBite Director, Ambassador and celebrity chef, Matt Preston, was there to deliver meals to students who have experienced food insecurity during the global pandamic.
“I am pleased to be here today to meet some of the University of Melbourne’s enthusiastic international students and provide some support during a really challenging time for young people,” says SecondBite director and Ambassador, Matt Preston.
Since COVID hit, SecondBite, (in partnership with FareShare), have rescued 62,000kg of food that would have otherwise gone to landfill and repurposed to the University of Melbourne. That is the equivalent of a staggering 124,000 meals!
SecondBite CEO Jim Mullan said of the partnership “We are working towards ending waste and ending hunger in Australia through smart ways of getting surplus food to people in need. This program and partnership with Study Melbourne and FareShare is just one example of the way SecondBite ensures that surplus food does not end up in landfill”.
