Food Leaders Australia (FLA), an initiative of Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE), has secured one tonne of premium beef patties for local charities, available in pack of 20 kilograms from Thursday 20 September.

Through its partnership with NH Foods, FLA is providing this food donation to support local charities, sporting and service clubs in the Toowoomba region. The two organisations partnered up after witnessing the region coming together through strong fundraising efforts to support the wellbeing of the community in a time of need. FLA General Manager Bruce McConnel says, “We welcome and charities who can benefit from these beef patties to come forward, however we particularly welcome those who are looking to raise money for drought relief in our wider region.”

FLA acknowledges the team from Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland for their support in fielding enquiries from charities looking to benefit from this donation, as well as the Ramia family from Orchy Toowoomba for providing a local storage location.
