The 2013 charity partner: SecondBite!
SecondBite is committed to making a positive difference to people by identifying sources of nutritious surplus fresh food that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it through local agencies to people in need. SecondBite was started in 2005 by a small team of dedicated volunteers and since then more than 7 million kilograms of fresh food has been rescued and redistributed. Through Pin & Win, SecondBite raised valuable funds through the sale of miniature Melbourne Cup lapel pins. The official fundraising result will be announced in late November 2013.
