Unused MCG food and drinks help those in need

During the AFL season, the Melbourne Cricket Ground is heaving with screaming fans every weekend. But when the season was put on hold due to COVID-19, the MCG fell silent.

With no crowds, there was no use for the food and drinks Spotless’ hospitality business, EPICURE, serves up to hungry punters each weekend.

Rather than letting it go to waste, we donated 27,000 drinks and packaged food products to SecondBite’s food rescue program to help support struggling families.

The team from EPICURE got together with employees from the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Coca-Cola to

clean out kitchens and vending machines and deliver to SecondBite.

SecondBite exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need across Australia. They rescue surplus food from across the retail network and redistribute it – free of charge – to more than 1,300 local charities around the country, providing food relief to people in need.
