Oggers help out SecondBite
The Old Geelong Football Club is now in its fifth season of helping SecondBite with their work, and our involvement continues to increase.
SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need across Australia. We do this by rescuing and redistributing surplus fresh food, building community capacity in food skills and nutrition and advocating for an end to food insecurity.
Our first collections for this year were conducted on Sunday 17 July, with two teams of OGs players helping out with food collections from store holders in the afternoon – food which would otherwise go to waste. One team operated at Vic Market and the other at South Melbourne Market.
Al Dugdale, Duane Jefferis, Nick McRae, Nick O'Hare, Ben Millar and Andy Trigg at South Melbourne Market.
Andy Leahy, Jason Barry and Rory James at Queen Victoria Market
A big thank you to those who gave up part of their Sunday afternoon, and to those who are going to do so with further collections planned as follows:
Queen Victoria Market: 31 July, 14 August
South Melbourne Market: 31 July
