OUR GOAL: To provide 250,00 meals to SecondBite by 30 June 2017
PonyUp is determined to shift your thinking about the 're-use' of resources and how we can turn things organisations no longer needed, into healthy meals for those doing it tough.
PonyUp for Good is proud to partner with SecondBite, Australia’s biggest fresh food rescue charity - redistributing fresh, surplus food donated by farmers, wholesalers, markets, supermarkets, caterers and events to more than 1300 community food programs on the frontline of food poverty around Australia. They started more than ten years ago and has operations in every state and territory of Australia.
Last year SecondBite:
Rescued 10 million kilograms of fresh nutritious food. That’s 20 million healthy meals for vulnerable people, including homeless, women and families in crisis centres, youth at risk, indigenous communities, asylum seekers and new arrivals to Australia.
Saved community organisations more than $30 million in food costs alone, enabling more funds for investment in other essential services including accommodation, employment and training, medical and social programs.
