Coles donates $1m a week in food

Coles has announced they will donate extra food and groceries to the retail value of $1 million a week to help Australians who are facing hardship as a result of coronavirus.

The food donations will be directed to food relief organisations, Foodbank and SecondBite, which will in turn distribute the food up to 3800 community food programs across Australia.

“For many years, we have donated surplus edible food from our supermarkets and distribution centres but sadly we are hearing that an increasing number of people in our community are facing particularly tough times as a flow-on effect of the coronavirus,” says Coles Group CEO, Steven Cain.

“We hope that by donating an additional $1 million in food each week to SecondBite and Foodbank, we can help get food and essentials to people who are especially vulnerable at this unprecedented time.”
