Emergency Winter Appeal

$

The start of 2020 has brought devastation and loss for many Australians. The bushfires and now the unfolding fallout from COVID-19 has seen a significant rise in the demand for food relief. As we move into Winter - a time that can be very challenging for the most vulnerable in our community - your contribution is needed now more than ever.

With your help, we can make a real difference

FOR EVERY $1 YOU DONATE, WE WILL RESCUE ENOUGH FOOD TO PROVIDE 5 MEALS

Who will your donation make a difference to? 

Take a minute to think of the people who do not have a home to go to as the nights begin to cool off. The elderly members of our community now isolated and living on a small pension having to choose between spending money on food or heating. Single parents and low-income families who now find themselves unemployed but still need to put food on the table for their children. Remote indigenous communities in lockdown and cut-off from reliable and affordable food sources. Families and businesses who tragically lost everything in the bushfires and who are now faced with the challenges of COVID-19 as they try and rebuild their lives. These are just some of the faces that rely on community food relief and, sadly, the numbers keep rising. 

A donation of $50 will enable us to provide enough food for 250 meals to our charity partners like St Marys House of Welcome who are supporting people in crisis at this time:

'St Marys House of Welcome is so grateful for the food we receive through SecondBite, especially now as we continue to provide an essential service through the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently distributing up to 700 substantive meal packs a day for our regular service users (people sleeping rough, or experiencing chronic homelessness and disadvantage), people in temporary crisis accommodation, as well as providing meals to smaller, grassroots organisatino when we can. The food we receive through SecondBite helps us to meet this growing need, helping ensure we have enough food to meet demand. This is vital for vulnerable community members who do not have the ability to feed themselves in this challenging time'

- Robina Bradley, CEO St Mary's House of Welcome

We don't believe that Australian households and individuals should be forced to decide between 'heating and eating' in Winter and we don't believe that food should be considered a discretionary item for anyone living in Australia, particularly in Winter.

Please donate as generously as you can to help us increase the amount of food we can provide to people all around the country doing it tough. Your generous gift will be put straight to use helping us to provide real solutions and make a meaningful difference to millions of Australians who are not sure where their next meal is coming from.

Our SecondBite team has been working around the clock and will continue to do so, not only as we respond to the immediate need, but, as we navigate what the landscape will look like following COVID-19. 

A heartfelt thank you for your support. Quite simply, we couldn't do what we do without your help.
