WA’s pubs and taverns are helping out drought affected Aussie farmers in need by plating up chicken parmigianas to eager customers.
Pubs, bars, taverns and restaurants across Western Australia are working in conjunction with their customers to lend a helping hand to Australian farmers in drought affected areas.
Dozens of hospitality businesses participating in the Parma For A Farmer promotion are raising funds in support of farming families who are dealing with crippling drought conditions in other states.
The Australian Hotels Association (WA) CEO Bradley Woods said it was the latest example of licensed venues participating in worthwhile campaigns to lend a helping hand to fellow Australians.
“Each day we are seeing more venues get on board with this campaign to help support farmers on the Eastern seaboard who are facing some of the most trying weather conditions they have seen in decades,” Mr Woods said.
“It is deeply heartening but not surprising to see so many venues participating in this worthy cause – WA’s pubs, bars, restaurants and taverns regularly undertake fundraising activities to help out those in need, so it is fantastic to see them yet again passing around the hat to help out their country cousins, despite being thousands of kilometers from affected areas.”
The Parma For A Farmer initiative results in a dollar or more of every chicken parmigiana sold donated to the Buy a Bale campaign, which helps purchase livestock feed for farmers in need.
Participation in the campaign is helping providing tangible, meaningful support for farmers across drought affected areas, with the Buy A Bale program helping deliver over 160,000 bales of hay across four states since 2013.
