Winter Tax Appeal 2019

$

I’m writing to you, again, to ask for your support as we move into the most difficult period of the year for the least fortunate in our communities.

As we’ve discussed in previous appeals, food insecurity occurs when people do not have enough food for themselves or their families and cannot afford to buy more.  This continues to be an increasingly alarming feature of life for a growing number of Australians.

It is my sad duty to report that when I was appointed in this role almost three years ago, it was estimated that around 2.5 million Australians had accessed some form of food relief in the previous year. In past year that number was 4 million Australians.

Food insecurity impacts upon a broad spectrum of our population but disproportionately impacts low income families, the elderly, those in receipt of state benefits, single parent households, young care leavers, immigrants, indigenous communities and, not surprisingly, the homeless.

SecondBite provides nutritious food for people in need across Australia free of charge. We do this by rescuing and redistributing surplus fresh food every day. Food relief is our core business and we are completely committed to serving communities who need our help.

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.

With your support we will provide meals for those who otherwise would go hungry across the country.

FOR EVERY $1.00 YOU DONATE, WE WILL RESCUE ENOUGH FOOD TO PROVIDE 5 MEALS.

Thank you in advance for your generous support, we couldn’t do what we do without your help.
