Pancakes prove food for life

Communities around Queensland will have stacks of fun with Pancake Day this year, as they cook and sell $2 pancakes to help raise money for those who need it most.

Over 600 groups and businesses around Queensland will be supporting UnitingCare’s Pancake Day on Tuesday 20 February, to help the elderly, homeless and vulnerable members of the community.

All funds raised from Pancake Day events go back into the local area that raised the funds.

This means, it’s a chance to not only help people in need, but to help people at a local level.

Last year over 600 organisations throughout Queensland and 2000 Australia wide participated in Pancake Day events with schools, businesses, community groups and churches raising more than $500,000 across the country.

The slogan of Pancake Day, “share it ’round”, promotes the idea of sharing with those in need in our communities – “There’s enough for everyone if we share it ’round”.

UnitingCare is the health and community services provider of the Uniting Church and is the largest not-for-profit provider in Queensland with 15,000 staff, 5,000 volunteers, providing services in over 330 geographic locations across the state.
