Just Zilch is by the community, for the community ‐ Together we aim to be a community that won’t let anyone go hungry.

To do this we need help paying the bills. So, we created ‘A Piece of Cake’ fundraiser. Seriously, have you ever tried to eat a whole cake by yourself? Plus, it’s way better if you share it with others.

We are looking for corporate sponsors that want to join us to create a community free from hunger and reduce food waste.

Each ‘piece of cake’ is worth a donation of $5200 a year – or $100 a week. In return, we’ll say thanks many times over and we’ll even bake you a cake!

The money raised will cover about 50% of our costs, covering items such as, but not limited to: electricity, cleaning products, gloves and food grade bags, fuel and van related expenses, rent, rates and staff wages.

If you can’t join us for cake, then please support the companies who are helping us – thank you
