About Pancake Day

Pancake Day is an annual fundraising event run by Uniting Vic.Tas which invites church congregations, community groups, kindergartens and others to sell pancakes.

The money you raised will go directly to programs and services that are there to help people when they need it most.

This Pancake Day, you can help make a difference to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in Victoria and Tasmania.

 

Why pancakes?

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the last day to eat all of the luxury foods in the pantry before the start of Lent, which is a time of abstinence and reflection in the 40 days before Easter.

These foods include flour, eggs and dairy products, which when combined, make delicious pancakes!
