Giving Back - Tukr Snacks

Giving Back

You can feel good knowing that each nut you eat is in some way contributing to a better community. Each box that you buy donates meals to Second Bite - providing several meals to those in need.

    1% of our time.
    Every month, all Tukr staff are encouraged to spend at least half a day volunteering for organisations in our local community. For us so far, this has meant taking part in the St Vincent de Paul, Footscray Soup Van run; preparing and serving meals for people doing it tough in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

    1% of our product.
    We honestly believe that our snacks are the most delicious and nutritious that your money can buy. We’ve been willing guinea pigs ourselves for months! When you feel so strongly about the quality of your own products, it gives you a genuine sense of pride to be able to give them away to someone in need or an organisation you feel would love them too.

    Although we are barely months old as an organisation, we have decided to partner with food rescue organisation, SecondBite, to whom we will look to donate 1% of our product moving forward to help them support their cause of providing nutritious food to the thousands of Aussies for whom food insecurity is a very real, everyday issue.

      1% of our profit.

      With so much fresh food, especially in developed countries going to waste, we thought it was a terrific choice to partner with the organisation, SecondBite. They work with over 1,300 community food programs across Australia to redistribute rescued food to those in our community who need it most. In the 2016-2017 financial year, SecondBite provided the equivalent of 22 million meals to Australians doing it tough. SecondBite also provides a very tangible way of us being able to measure the value we’re adding through our donation with every $1 donated translating to the equivalent of them providing 4 meals to people in need.

      Which ship most of our orders through Sendle. We chose them as a partner because they are a registered B Corp and Australia's first carbon neutral delivery service. Also, their shipping is cheaper than parcel post.

      100% recyclable and (FSC)® certified Packaging Boxes
