VISION: “not about changing the world, but changing someone’s world…”

Having saved 3, 500 kg of unsold food collected from campus vendors in 2016, Two Birds One Scone continues to minimize food wastage by collecting, packing and distributing to local churches for community lunches and diners with the disadvantaged.

Collecting from over 8 vendors in La Trobe University, student volunteers take some of their time after university hours, to collect and package unsold food, otherwise trashed at the end of each day. We have been mentioned to be one of the “fastest growing clubs in La Trobe University history” and with the support of the Student Union and student volunteers, the club has been of great success.

We aim to grow nationally and magnify our services. Having expanded to Monash University under a different name, the idea of every college in Australia doing what we do pushes us to work harder and move beyond our comfort zone.

Future plans involve sanitary and hygiene products being distributed along with the food, donated by students on campus. We are also aiming to initiate a student-tutoring program for unfortunate kids in our local area, giving La Trobe University ‘Education’ students an opportunity to not only gain some experience in their field, but help a child through their struggles.

We would like to thank Café Veloci, Bake n Bean, Caffeine, Café Spice, Grain Express, Fuel Juice and Charlie’s for contributing to our cause and being so supportive. A big thanks also goes out to the Student Union for being our day one supporters and our very own volunteers.

Looking forward to another successful year!
