Raise a fork for our farmers with Rockpool this drought season

Rockpool Raise Fork

We need food to live. And we get food from farmers. Without farmers there’s no food. Without food, we die.

So you can see how this major drought that is affecting more than the livelihood of Australian farmers has a very real and very horrifying knock-on effect for all of us, yeah?

That’s why the likes of hospitality group Rockpool Dining Gruop, directed by Australian chef Neil Perry, are putting on the first ‘Raise a Fork’ initiative to help Australian farmers and their rural communities.

The Bavarian and The Bavarian Beerhaüs restaurants in the drought-affected states of NSW and Queensland will host the Raise a Fork For Our Farmers drought relief fundraisers on the last Sunday in August, ensuring all profits made are donated to Aussie Helpers, which supports Australian farming families in need of assistance.

The Raise A Fork For Our Farmers campaign is part of an broader commitment by Rockpool Dining Group to support farmers struggling to cope with devastating drought conditions, with more fundraising to follow.

Australian farmers are at the frontline of record dry conditions that have plunged the entire state of NSW and over 50 percent of Queensland into drought. Rockpool Dining Group’s affinity with and reliance on farmers and local producers is what is driving their commitment to the cause.
