In purchasing our Cooking for Compassion cookbook, you are supporting Wesley Mission Victoria’s annual Food for Families appeal.
Click here to order your copy today for only $20!
The aim of this appeal is to collect food and toiletries, as well as monetary donations, to provide for families in need in the lead up to Christmas – as well as throughout the coming year.
The number of clients accessing our Crisis and Homelessness Services is increasing each year. In 2012/13, Wesley provided services including housing, transport and food to 17,545 Victorians, an increase of 29 per cent on the previous year.
The book is filled with recipes that feature the non-perishable food items most commonly donated as part of the appeal. Because of this, we will also be providing free copies of the recipes to the clients who use our services, so that they can also make some of the delicious meals featured in the book.

'Christmas is one my of favourite times of year. My mum, sister and I sit around laughing and eating. It is something I often take for granted. But this year will be different.' - Callum Hann, Food for Families ambassador.
This year Callum is taking on the #FoodForFamilies Challenge. For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, he will give up something - from his morning coffee, to his car to his phone - and donating what he saves to Food For Families.
Will you join Callum? What will you give up this Christmas? Where will your money go?
We are asking the community to take part in the #FoodForFamilies Challenge in a bid to raise awareness about the struggles of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Join the conversation on Twitter or Facebook through #FoodForFamilies.
You can give up something small like your morning coffee, or take on a bigger challenge such as hot water, your mobile phone or even a bed.
Tell us how you are going, how much money you have saved, and how it has made you grateful this Christmas.
If you wish to donate the money that you save back to Food for Families, please email us
