Two Birds One Scone

Logo for Two Birds One Scone

Two Birds One Scone is a La Trobe student-led organisation founded in 2016. Our charity aims to minimise food wastage and hunger, therefore accomplishing two things at once and 'feeding Two Birds with One Scone'. Since 2016 we have saved over 4.5 tonnes of food waste and fed thousands of vulnerable people throughout Melbourne. We provide food and other essentials to people experiencing homelessness, as well as struggling students and community members. The work we do has been made possible because of the help and dedication of our student volunteers and great leadership team. Two Birds One Scone started by collecting unsold food on campus, and distributing it to people experiencing homelessness in the community. Since the start of the pandemic, our charity has had to adapt to closed vendors and an increase in need of food support in the community. So we now focus on collecting unsold food from other charities and local bakeries to provide a range of food and non-food items to those in need in the community, including students, families and individuals.
