We love our sunburnt country, but we also know that Australia is just a bit too sunburnt at the moment, with many rural areas at crisis point due to ongoing drought, and there’s no relief in sight.
If you’re looking for a way to help the farmers who supply our food, you can now combine your passion for baking with raising money for an important cause, with charity event Bake for a Farmer taking place to help our stricken farmers.
Jocelyn’s Provisions is hosting the bake sale – its first-ever – on December 1 to raise the desperately needed funds for Drought Angels, an amazing small charity that works with farming families affected by natural disasters Australia wide.
Jocelyn’s will welcome everyone from the industry who wants to take part to come together and bake up a storm for a delicious day out and raise money and awareness for the devastating drought.
On the day, you’ll be able to pick up scrumptious goods from some of Brisbane’s best culinary minds, including ARC Dining, Ben Williamson (soon to open his highly anticipated 22 Agnes concept), CRU Bar, e’cco bistro, Gerard’s Bistro, Harveys Bar + Bistro, Hellenika, sAme sAme (the former LONGTIME crew), Short Order, Sixes and Sevens, and Tartufo.
Bakers, lovers of food and the Albion Fine Trades community will band together in support of this worthy cause. Participating businesses will each host a baked goods stall, full of delicious sweet and savoury treats, with all proceeds going to Drought Angels.
Aside from the delicious treats on sale, the day is promised to be fun for the whole family with plenty of live music, raffle prizes, and a petting zoo and face painting for the kids.
It’s a day to get everyone together, dig deep for the cause, and spend the day eating amazing food and enjoying the entertainment.
