The Ballarat community are helping to keep locals in need fed, after the Ballarat Soup Bus announced food supplies were at dire levels.

Over the last week, $10,000 in cash, food and non-perishable items have been donated to the bus, filling shelves and helping residents in need of food assistance.

It comes after the Soup Bus last week called for donations as their Wendouree pantry was left with just three cans of baked beans.

A shipping container that held supplies for the bus was also near-empty.

If you’d like to donate, non-perishable food can be dropped off any Wednesday between 9:30 and 11.00am at the corner of Fussell and Eureka Street, behind the Ballarat East Men’s Shed, or every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at the same time and place.

The Food Bus says Advanced Cabinetry on Fussell Street have also offered to be a drop off point but check their opening times for when you can leave donations.
