That is how much food members of the Bannockburn Community Centre Management Committee were dealing with yesterday in a fundraising effort that will raise about $4000 for their centre.
It is more than two years since the century-old Bannockburn Hall was closed because of earthquake risk and its future is still uncertain.
Committee chairwoman Kerry Stainton-Herbert said they were waiting to see the result from the latest Central Otago District Council report.
She said the committee started raising money about a month ago and already had $1300 in the kitty.
The Cromwell Community Board has agreed to provide a grant of $204,000 for the hall, giving half in the 2014-15 financial year and the rest the following year.
The price tag for a new centre has been estimated at $1.3 million but it has also been estimated that strengthening the current hall would cost less than half that.
Planning for further fundraising is well under way. The next event is likely to be ''Across the Bridge'', which will highlight the area and its artists.
