Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

There are many in our community helping the disadvantaged. And many of these you simply would not realise are doing it.

I found out by browsing the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers Market (ASFM) site that they have partnered with the State’s largest hunger-relief organisation, Foodbank.
Foodbank is a South Australian program that has delivered real and significant value add to Anglicare SA and the hundreds of other organisations reaching out to people and families facing hardship.

The ASFM contribute via its stall holders donating all the produce left over from the Sunday markets for pick up on Monday by Foodbank.

Well done ASFM and well done the stall holders.

And here is the big tip. You too can help by hand delivering your excess garden fruit and vegetable stocks to the market on Sunday morning and it too will be collected by Foodbank.
