Melbourne's #1 Food Market


Second Bite

SecondBite redistributes surplus fresh food to community food programs around Australia. Food is donated by farmers, wholesalers, markets, supermarkets, caterers and events. This high-quality surplus food is redistributed to community food programs that support people who are homeless, women and families in crisis, youth at risk, indigenous communities, asylum seekers and new arrivals.

Each year Prahran Market Traders donate fresh food to SecondBite, which would have instead gone to landfill. SecondBite collects the food and redistributes it to over 1,000 agencies (including local agencies, Prahran Mission, The Prahran Adventure Playground and Sacred Heart Mission) and thousands of people who are homeless or living in disadvantaged circumstances.

OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, saving surplus food from ending up in landfill and delivering it to charities that help feed people in need.  OzHarvest is constantly looking for new ways to inspire and educate people about food waste, food security and sustainability.  Through education programs and advocacy work, they hope to inspire others to change behaviour and help reach the national target of halving food waste by 2030.

Over the 2023 Christmas period the OzHarvest Tree of Goodness in Market Square raised $2,200 = 4400 additional meals delivered to Victorians in need.
