Help families doing it tough with donation card
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.
