Fight hunger: Liverpool and Fairfield residents can help wage a war against hunger this winter. With as many as one in eight Australians living below the poverty line, shoppers can show their support to national food rescue charity, SecondBite, by purchasing a $2 donation card or packets of Continental soup at their local Coles. For every $2 donated at Coles, SecondBite can provide the equivalent of 10 nutritious meals to disadvantaged Australians. For every pack of Continental soup purchased at Coles supermarkets until July 3, Unilever has pledged to donate one cup of Continental soup to SecondBite until the total donations equal 1 million cups.
