Farmer Joe's was launched on 11 November 2019 during the worst drought our area has endured.
We helped local farmers and those affected by the devastating bushfires during the summer of 2019-20.
Farmer Joe's Pantry was a place where affected community members from across the Mid North Coast could visit and fill their pantry with essential food items.
Long time club member, Pam Foye, is the driving force behind Farmer Joe's. Pam did a wonderful job in building the pantry from scratch.
Pam was told many stories of hardship for those living off the land.
We have lots of tears, some sad, some joyful.
Pam loved to see farmers, who are doing it so tough, leave with a car boot full of needed stuff and a big smile on their face.
The demand for help was expected to continue long after the fire/summer season was over.
Sadly though the threat of COVID meant that Farmer Joe's Pantry had to be closed down prematurely.
