Farmers Siobhan O’Malley and Wayne Langford have founded new charity Meat the Need, which aims to get donated produce from farmers to food banks across New Zealand. The charity has been in the pipeline for a year, and means that farmers are able to gift produce when they are able to throughout the year, ensuring food banks have quality food to give out to New Zealand’s most vulnerable. They are starting with 500g packets of beef mince, and livestock can be donated online or via Silver Fern Farms, one of the founding partners for the charity. DairyNZ, Federated Farmers, Beef + Lamb NZ, as well as AgProudNZ and individual farmers have also helped in the initial stages of the charity.
