The drought affecting 98% of NSW and two thirds of QLD has not only caused pastures to dry up – the cost of freight and feed has also been increasing exponentially, leaving farmers facing ruin.
The Parma For A Farmer campaign aims to donate a dollar for every chicken parmigiana sold at registered pubs and clubs across the nation. The money will go to the Buy a Bale foundation, which recently teamed up with Bunnings to support farmers.
The Parma for a Farmer facebook page has gone gangbusters since it went public in the past week, with venues rushing to support the cause and sign up.
Parma fans have flocked to social media using the hashtag #parmaforafarmer, proudly sharing their cheesy meals to make a difference.
