Help fam­i­lies do­ing it tough with do­na­tion card

Pilbara News - - News -

Coles at Kar­ratha, South Hed­land and Tom Price is rais­ing money for Se­condBite, a na­tional char­ity that re­dis­tributes sur­plus fresh food to Aus­tralian fam­i­lies in need.

As part of the five-week cam­paign un­til Au­gust 2, lo­cal residents can buy a $2 Se­condBite do­na­tion card at Coles to help to de­liver the equiv­a­lent of five healthy meals to Aus­tralian fam­i­lies do­ing it tough.

The fundrais­ing comes as Coles su­per­mar­kets reaches a new mile­stone, do­nat­ing the equiv­a­lent of 30 mil­lion meals in five years to peo­ple do­ing it tough across Aus­tralia.

De­spite the meal mile­stone, each year two mil­lion Aus­tralians still strug­gle to put food on the table.

Coles State gen­eral man­ager Mark O’Con­nor said he hoped with sur­plus fresh food do­na­tions and the sup­port from lo­cal cus­tomers, the com­mu­nity could make a dif­fer­ence to peo­ple do­ing it tough.

Se­condBite chief ex­ec­u­tive Jim Mul­lan said the or­gan­i­sa­tion had part­nered with Coles since Novem­ber 2011 to res­cue sur­plus fresh, nu­tri­tious food for peo­ple in need.
