Community Foodshare & Relief
The Community Foodshare project is aimed at supporting distribution of local and interstate fruit and vegetables that are provided to local school breakfast programs, soup kitchens and welfare agencies that pass on to the districts needy. SMECC works closely with Foodbank South Australia on this project, who provide significant support from their Berri facility.
SecondBite work with over 1200 community food programs across Australia to redistribute rescued food to those who need it most.
SMECC have partnered with SecondBite to provide this service to local organisations who provide food programs and/or redistribute food themselves. In addition, the Secondbite program distributes food to our local Refugee and asylum seeker communities. Secondbite began at SMECC in May 2019 and has already provided much needed relief to many organisations and clients.
