Club Maitland City is ready to put as many chicken parmigiana’s on plates as it possibly can.
The club is backing drought-stricken farmers through Rural Aid’s Parma for a Farmer fundraising campaign, and they’ve hinted that is only the beginning of their plans to help farmers survive the unrelenting drought.
“We will continue to back our farmers, whether people realise it or not it’s been a dry winter and as they come into summer it’s just going to get harder,” the club’s Meleah McInnes said.
“We are getting revved up ready to go again. Parma for a Farmer is going to be the tip of the iceberg. We’d like to rally together a few of the other clubs as well to do something big together.”
The fundraiser will start next week and continue for two months. A portion of the sale of every chicken parmigiana will bolster Buy A Bale campaign funds and buy hay for livestock farmers.
Mrs McInnes urged pubs, cafes and restaurants to join the movement.
