For someone who's struggling, all they want for Christmas is often just a hearty meal, and this is where you come in!
Ballarat business Country Casseroles has been helping the Ballarat Soup Bus for 8 years now.
But when they wanted to extend the program to the local Salvation Army, they found that the next best solution was to start their own charity.
Ian from Country Casseroles, John from Salvation Army and Lorraine and Jan from Soup Bus dropped into the studio to discuss this amazing initiative with Garrath & Gabe on Ballarat Today.
You can now donate money for a meal at payitforwardballarat.com.au or drop into Country Casseroles at 1031 Sturt Street, Ballarat Central.
