There are those in the community who do wonderful work and Second Bite is one that goes quietly providing an essential service to many in the region including SEWACS (Southeast Women and Children’s Services) Second Bite delivers supplies to SEWACS to support women and children affected by domestic violence and homelessness in the Eurobodalla region. Second Bite sources fresh, nutritious food from supermarkets that is surplus to requirements and works with local community organisations to redistribute to those individuals and families who may be struggling to afford food. Food is collected from Coles Batemans Bay by volunteers and delivered to organisations in the region. SEWACS is a grateful recipient of the much needed items that enable families to be supported.

SEWACS would also like to thank artist Loretta Parsley for making available a beautiful piece of art which was raffled on the day. At the stall face painting was offered and information on support services was made available. Eurobodalla Domestic Violence volunteers collected $600 to support the work being done to support families affected by domestic violence. Members of Deep River Choir contributed their time and some noise to help raise awareness, accompanied by volunteers. Donations from Bunnings and K Mart made it possible for the stall to be held as well as goodies to be hand out.
