OUR GOAL: To provide 2 Million meals to SecondBite BY 2020
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.
Collected food from over 600 Coles Supermarkets who participate in the Coles Community Food program with SecondBite. That's over 75% of Coles stores nationwide!
