What does this organisation do?
SecondBite is a not-for-profit organisation which responds to requests from community agencies supporting people in need, to improve their clients' nutrition. The organisation aims to bridge the gap between food wastage and hunger by 'allowing one to serve as a solution to the other', which is done by rescuing and redistributing surplus fresh food. The food rescued by SecondBite are delivered at no cost to community agencies, schools, refuges and soup vans across Adelaide and surrounding areas, who provide food relief programs for disadvantaged individuals and families to improve their health, wellbeing and social inclusion.
Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
People affected by domestic or family violence or abuse
We all expect to be treated with respect and fairness by our partners and in our families. Yet domestic violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44. Children exposed to domestic or family violence are at increased risk of mental health, behavioural and learning difficulties.
