Helping to feed people in need
IN the past three years, Coles at Carousel Shopping Centre has donated more than 30,500kg of food through its partnership with SecondBite.
Victoria Park-based charity Manna Inc is one organisation that has benefited from the partnership.
“The produce provided by Coles saves us time and more importantly, money.
“We turn this fresh produce into cooked meals for hundreds of clients each day,” kitchen co-ordinator Lolo Sinclair said.
Throughout this month, shoppers can donate to Second- Bite to help provide meals to people in need.
MasterChef Australia judge and SecondBite ambassador Matt Preston encouraged shoppers to get behind the campaign.
“Thousands of people across Australia, including some local residents in this community, depend on SecondBite and its community food program partners to get the nourishment they need.
“We encourage local residents to support SecondBite this winter by donating at Coles,” he said.
Customers can also purchase SecondBite food storage labels for $2.
