Beyond the craziness of the Christmas period, is the widely acknowledged notion that the festive season is about taking a step back and enjoying a great meal with friends and family.
And while for many, this is something that comes naturally on December 25th, for so many other regular Aussies, getting a festive feast with all the trimmings, on the table, is a struggle.
Foodbank Australia has partnered once again this year with Aussie Farmers Direct with Project Rudolph to create a Christmas food box for families in need. Inside the box is everything needed to create a festive feast. From a roast to veggies like spuds, and a traditional christmas cake, this $45 gift can provide one Aussie family with something truly special.
- 1kg Australian pork boneless leg roast
- 2 x zucchini
- 2 x broccoli
- 1kg washed potatoes
- 500g pre-packed carrots
- 1 x butternut pumpkin
- 300g package of Great Temptations Anzac Biscuits
- 2L Aussie Farmers Direct orange juice
- 800g dark Christmas cake
By simply spending what you might on a toy or present (or a few weeks’ coffees) you could be giving a struggling family this Christmas meal to remember.
“Foodbank and Aussie Farmers Direct are hoping to distribute over 1,000 Christmas meal boxes across Australia this year. With people living outside major cities 11% more likely to experience food insecurity on a regular basis, Aussie Farmers Direct and Foodbank will focus on supporting rural and regional communities”.
