Food rescue organisation OzHarvest is asking Australians to turn their summer barbecue into a good cause.

Aimed at providing funds for people in need, OzHarvest has created a campaign called OzSizzle whereby consumers can register their barbecues online and raise money.

OzHarvest CEO and founder Ronni Kahn said every dollar raised could help OzHarvest provide two meals for someone in need.

“Turning your backyard barbecue into an OzSizzle is such an easy way to help put food on the table for those in our own communities who are still going hungry," she said.

"Whether you're entertaining friends or holding a pre-payday sausage sizzle at work, throw something delicious on the barbie and don't forget to register it at OzSizzle.com.au.

"Once registered, a bespoke fundraising page can send out invites to your event and collect donations."

From 24-30 January, Woolworths is supporting OzSizzle with 10 cents from specially marked sausages going towards OzHarvest, available in-store and online.

OzHarvest regularly collects quality surplus food from more than 3000 businesses, including supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, hotels, retailers, airports and retail food outlets.

Every week, over 100 tonnes of food is saved from going to landfill and delivered to over 1000 charitable agencies.
