More food support for farmers doing it tough
BEECHWORTH Health Service’s kitchen staff are the latest hospitality team to jump at the chance to help drought-affected farmers.
They have organised a special Parma For A Farmer event to be held at Beechworth Health Service on September 19 which they’re inviting the local community to enjoy.
Parma For A Farmer initiative has been running for much of August and targeted hotels, clubs, restaurants and eateries across Australia to agree to give $1 for every parma sold to the Buy a Bale campaign.
Numerous local pubs and restaurants have taken it on and Beechworth Health Service’s head chef Neil Price said his team was looking forward to the community event which will give all profi ts to the initiative.
“The kitchen staff came up with the idea and have donated their time to host the event,” Mr Price said.
“We are inviting the community to come along to Beechworth Health Service and join us for a parma and chips with all profits donated to drought affected farmers.”
Chef Brook Wells has volunteered to cook the parmas and is thrilled to be a part of the event.
“The kitchen staff wanted to do something to help the farmers and so we have jumped on board the parma for a farmer movement,” she said
“It will be a fun day with raffles, music and prizes.”
The Parma for a Farmer event will be held on Wednesday, September 19 at Beechworth Health Service from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
A parma and chips will cost $ 10 and can be pre- ordered by contacting Beechworth Health Service reception by phone ( 03) 570 280 200 or via email.
