SecondBite celebrates Christmas

$

It has been a big year for SecondBite, and I’d like to start by saying thank you to all our donors and supporters who have helped us to achieve our food rescue mission and deliver more than 75,000 meals across Australia every day.

Last year SecondBite rescued over 13.8 million kilograms of nutritious food nationally. That’s enough for over 27 million healthy meals and we couldn’t have done this without your support.

However there is still much to do and regrettably the past 12 months has witnessed more than 4 million Australians experience food insecurity an increase of 11% on the previous year. That’s an additional 400,000 people.

Of the 4 million:

·       60% (2,160.000) experienced food insecurity at least once a month

·       51% (2,040,000) sought relief from charities 

·       22% (880,000) are children.

Many of our agencies tell us stories of the support we collectively provide to individuals and families - whether it’s food for a community lunch or dinner, or a hamper of grocery items to help the family cook a dinner in their home.  

When trying to keep the family together or when the elderly or vulnerable are prioritising rent and bills, food is often the first thing to be sacrificed and increasingly we are supporting people who live in our streets not on our streets.

The holiday period can be a particularly tough time for those needing our help and, as many services close down, SecondBite continues to work to ensure that wherever possible food gets to those who need it.

So as we think about Christmas, the gifts we will share with loved ones and the role that food plays in our celebrations we call on you again to consider those less fortunate than ourselves.

For every $1 you donate, we will provide five fresh, nutritious meals to the vulnerable in this season of goodwill.

Please help us care for those who need a helping hand this Christmas and donate generously today.
