2020 continues to be challenging for the rural community. A cool summer followed by widespread flooding then 5 weeks of lockdown due to COVID-19. These have all played a part in squeezing winter feed supplies across the region.
Meat the Need is a brand new nationally based charity originally designed to supply much needed meat to City Missions and food banks. This Meat is donated by farmers, processed, packed and delivered to those most in need.
Jon says “Our hope is that Meat The Need, with the support of Ag Proud NZ will ensure access to food is not an issue for those in need because this is a hand up not a hand out. We will be working with the rural community to encourage support and donations to the cause. Utilising our networks to help with distribution into isolated communities and spread the word so that if Kiwis need help, they know farmers have got their backs.”
