Bring some sweet Baked Relief to drought-affected farmers
Fruitcake and ANZAC biscuits may not be able to crack the drought, but they sure can bring a smile and support to our cherished farmers.
Those carrots and corncobs on your plate didn’t just raise themselves – they were given plenty of guidance and nourishment from their farming families, before being pushed out into the big wide world and finding their way into your gob. While farmers work hard each day to get our dinners to the table, they’re having a rough time right now and could do with a bit of extra community support.
That’s where kind-hearted Brisbane folk like Danielle Crismani come in. The local mum developed the Baked Relief movement back in 2011 as a way to thank the volunteer crews who were working so hard to help Queenslanders during the floods. The program has since expanded to assisting more groups in need, with the latest project ‘Send the Love to the West’ delivering baked goods and notes of encouragement to our drought-affected farmers. The Baked Relief team is now calling upon Brisbane residents to whip up some sweet nourishment in the form of long-lasting ANZAC biscuits or fruitcake, and deliver the goods to drop-off points around Brisbane this weekend. The parcels of edible happiness will then be distributed to farmers around the state – from Alpha to Quilpie and even as far as the Northern Territory border. So after spoiling your lover this Friday, continue the theme of generosity and throw on the apron for those in need. Individually wrap your creations, list all ingredients on the label and check out the full list of drop-off points online.
