Murray Bridge residents are invited to help wage a war against hunger this winter by joining local efforts in raising funds to deliver meals to people in need. 

With around one in eight Australians living below the poverty line, customers at Coles can help show support by purchasing a $2 donation card for SecondBite – a national charity which redistributes surplus fresh food to Australians in need. 

For every $2 donated at Coles in Murray Bridge and Murray Bridge Green, SecondBite can provide the equivalent of 10 nutritious meals to disadvantaged Australians. 

One of the local agencies in Murray Bridge who will receive surplus funds is the Salvation Army.

Coles state general manager Sophie Wong encouraged locals to support the important cause this winter.

Salvation Army Murray Bridge captain Tim Watson said the help afforded by the cause helped the organisation to make a real difference in helping needy families in the community.
