Working with SecondBite to reduce food waste and end hunger is a project of the Rotary Club of Melbourne. Club members collect leftover food from the Prahran Market and deliver it to SecondBite, where it is turned into nutritious meals and redistributed to families in crisis, the elderly, those on low incomes, the homeless, Indigenous Australians, students, refugees and asylum seekers.
Every Sunday, members and friends of the Rotary Club of Melbourne help out with collecting the food. The project is championed by Bob Glindemann and is another example of a program that is attracting young volunteers. Following two and a half years of COVID restrictions the team was full of energy and excited to be back doing something to help vulnerable families and reduce waste that would otherwise go to landfill.
