Second Bite

The Second Bite Program

SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need.

We do this by stopping good food from going to waste. We rescue edible, nutritious food that was heading for landfill and give it to people in need, free of charge. For us, it’s simple: if it’s good enough to eat, it shouldn’t go to waste.

In Australia, we throw away an unbelievable amount of perfectly edible food every day.

At the same time, a growing number of Australians find themselves struggling to make ends meet – two million Australians find themselves unable to afford enough food to feed themselves or their families. The reasons behind this are complicated, but the bottom line isn’t – in short: we throw good food away while people go hungry. That doesn’t make sense.

SecondBite redistributes surplus fresh food to community food programs around Australia. Food is donated by farmers, wholesalers, markets, supermarkets, caterers and events. This high-quality surplus food is redistributed to community food programs that support people in need  from all walks of life.

Thanks to Coles and Fresca Fruit Kincumber!

If you are a business that would like to donate to the program we would love to here from you!

Kincumber Community Drug Action Team (CDAT)

Kincumber Community Drug Action Team is a group of residents and services working in the area who have identified anti-social behaviour as a result of alcohol and drug use as being a major factor within this region. The KCDAT are dedicated to investigating these issues and to look at ways to prevent it happening. One of the ways in which KCDAT are promoting the prevention of these issues has been by staging and running community led events and activities.
Any positive feedback and creative ideas are welcomed at the meetings and together we can lobby for resources to help decrease the number of anti-social issues happening on our streets.
