Foodshare volunteers

Tins have been rattling and hundreds of sausages sizzled during on-going, fund-raising for the Bendigo Foodshare Million Meals campaign.

With a target of $67,000, Bendigo Foodshare has already raised just over $27,000.

Manager of Bendigo Foodshare Steven Coles said that this is over 40 per cent of their set target.

While volunteers have enlisted the support of Bunnings Epsom, Bendigo Toyota, and the Bendigo Bank when hosting barbecues, the May focus for campaigning will be the sale of their cookbooks.

The cookbook features easy and simple meals and is priced at $20.

It is available online at, the City of Greater Bendigo offices, Bendigo Bank branches and many other participating Bendigo businesses.
