Abercromby's is proud to support SecondBite, who put 38.8 million meals on the tables of Australian's in need last year. We sat down with SecondBite's CEO, Jim Mullan to better understand why feeding Australian's in need, has tragically, become a growth industry.

"So, when I started here three years ago, 2.4 million people accessed food relief. Last calendar year it was 4 million. We're going to be feeding one million people a day in this country within the next couple of years, and that's not reversing. So, unfortunately, we find ourselves in a growth industry. I think the responsibility, however of organisations like Abercromby's is recognising that government is not coming back. It'll do stuff around the margins. But it's not coming back. If that's, in fact, the case, then what you need to do is try and plan, develop and fund an industrial approach to resolving this problem. Cause that's going to be the scale it requires".
