Grand Prix cancelled but SecondBite rescues unused food for needy

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 18th March 2020

The latest-minute cancellation of the 2020 Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park circuit in Melbourne on Friday 13 March due to Coronavirus Covid-19 risk mitigation had one positive news outcome.

Food rescue charitable organisation SecondBite was asked to collect all of the fresh, unused produce that would no longer be required for the event. 

SecondBite’s Victorian State Manager, Nick Harris, and Agency Coordinator, Daniel Vlahek did a brilliant job in getting a cohort of drivers and trucks to the event almost immediately o load up 1.5 tonnes of food.

Robina Bradley  GAICD from St Mary’s House of Welcome was ready and waiting with her amazing team to unload the produce and begin preparing meals for those who visit St Mary’s House of Welcome frequently.

SecondBite’s newest Ambassador, Sally Williams was on deck giving a hand. Well done team on a job well executed.  A grateful home was able to salvage all this food from waste and created meals for those in need of a good meal.
