Shoppers at Coles Cessnock and Kurri Kurri can help wage a war against hunger this winter by joining local efforts in raising funds to deliver meals to people in need.
All funds raised from Coles’ 2018 winter appeal will help food relief charity SecondBite to pay for its ongoing operating expenses such as fuel, transport and refrigeration so it can deliver the food donated by Coles.
For every $2 donation card bought at Coles, SecondBite can provide the equivalent of 10 nutritious meals to disadvantaged Australians.
In addition to this, for every pack of Continental soup purchased at Coles supermarkets between June 6 and July 3, Unilever has pledged to donate one cup of Continental soup to SecondBite until the total donations equal one million cups.
The winter appeal has provided the equivalent of 55 million meals since 2011.
