Fruit and Deli Co – Goodwill Bushfire Mission0
Knowing how regional areas are suffering as a result of unrelenting dry conditions and recent bushfires, the Pennisi brothers, Daniel and Greg, from the Fruit and Deli Co, North Lakes, decided to take action and recently travelled to Stanthorpe with fourteen pallets of goods and water.
“This whirlwind visit really touched our hearts. Meeting locals like Livio, who is a 3rd generation farmer. Fires have ravaged many farms but perhaps even worse, he said, is the complete lack of water.
At the current rate, they will run out of water by Christmas. Something needs to be done and fast. So much dry land, we need to do everything we can to support the land.
Buy fresh, buy local and buy often. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg- but it will cost a lot more by not doing so”, Daniel said.
