WHAT WE DO
COLLECT UNSOLD FOOD
REDISTRIBUTE TO THE LESS FORTUNATE
Our vendors support our mission and kindly donate their unsold food to us for the purposes of minimizing food wastage and allowing us to help the less fortunate with their food donations
Volunteers dedicate their time to safely package and label all food in preparation for delivery
Partnered with Neighbourhood Housing, Red Cross & Churches who provide to individuals & families
Providing for foster children of Mackillop Family Services and the homeless on our streets with gift bags during Christmas. Please help us provide hope by purchasing items through our GIFT SHOP with an option to add your personalised message to our less fortunate.
PROVIDING AID TO FAMILIES, INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS & HOMELESS
Our partnership with SecondBite allows us to provide hearty meals to families & international students who struggle to feed themselves and loved ones. Donations go towards essential items and hygiene care packs to those living on our streets.
"not to change the world, but to change someone's world....as one"
In 2016 Two Birds One Scone was founded and established by La Trobe University's Law/Finance student Melissa Lee. With her vision to make a difference Two Birds One Scone has since, saved over 4.5 tonnes of food and has fed thousands of unfortunate and homeless families & individuals in Melbourne, Australia. All possible with the help of many student volunteers and great leaders who have played large roles in its progress.
Our Name 'Two Birds One Scone'
Concept of accomplishing two things at once. We minimize both current issues of food wastage and hunger. Therefore feeding two birds with one scone.
Two Birds One Scone has created an awareness which was ignored for too long and has over 350 student volunteers who witness the abundant amount of food that they save during their collection schedules.
To expand our organization nationally throughout all universities in Australia so together we can make an effective difference with food waste and work towards minimizing hunger in our communities. In turn our mission will continue to create opportunities for university students to be leaders, to work in teams, to be caring and be selfless individuals.
