SecondBite: food for people in need

Who doesn’t hate seeing those big piles of beautiful fresh food thrown away in supermarket dumpsters? Massive amounts of perfectly fine food is never sold to consumers, all too often due to minor cosmetic flaws.

One of NWAICA’s amazing partners, SecondBite, has done something about this.

SecondBite, a food rescue not-for-profit organisation, receive surplus food from a large range of contributors and then passes it on to community programs. This way they are saving tonnes of perfectly fine food that would otherwise go to waste.

NWAICA is one of the very lucky receivers that get some of this food, to redistribute to our local community members in need.

Every week, fresh fruit, vegetables and sometimes other groceries are delivered to NWAICA by the always friendly SecondBite-drivers.

“SecondBite’s main focus is fresh fruit and veg, but we get all kinds of things. We even got packs of toilet paper one week! We find a home for most things.” says Daniel Arklay, Food Program Manager at SecondBite Queensland.

Daniel and his colleagues make more than 80 pickups and deliveries a week. Nation-wide, the organisation rescues 100+ tonnes every month.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
