"Fundraising with Sausage Sizzles" Top 5 Page for this destination Christchurch Local Custom Tip by Kakapo2

Christchurch Local Customs: 42 reviews and 46 photos

  Kiwis love their sausages ;-)
by Kakapo2

New Zealanders are fundraising all the time, for schools, churches, privately funded surgeries, just everything. Garage sales, kids selling chocolate and cookies and quiz nights are just some of the activities to raise money for mostly important things that do not get funding by the state.

On the weekends is the, I would call it: super sausage sizzle craze. In front of many supermarkets, shopping centres, DIY centres and the shops of the butcher who sponsors the sizzles, people like you and me are busy sizzling sausages and onions. It is the cheapest lunch you will get in the city. One sausage with onions and bread (which is a slice of untoasted toast-bread...) costs between NZ$1 and 1.50. This is still cheap even if you need two... ;-) Bon appetit!
