Who doesn’t love a delicious chicken parmigiana?

Well now there’s a special reason to buy one when dining out in the nation’s capital!

Local pubs and clubs have jumped on board the ‘Parma for a Farmer’ campaign, donating money from each parma sold to help communities affected by drought.

Several local venues have joined the campaign, including The Dock, Hale + Mary, Shorty’s, Edgar’s Inn and more!

Patrick Collins from The Dock at Kingston Foreshore said they’re offering $5 for every parma sold for the month of August.

“Our goal is to sell 500 for the month which would raise $2,500 but I think we can pretty much smash through that. I think we can go higher than 500,” he said.

“We get our schnitzels from the Bungendore Country Butchery and I’ve got to say they’re definitely on the larger side of the parmas you’ll find around town and one of the best.”

Mr Collins said it’s great to be part of such a worthy cause.

“It’s in the forefront of everyone’s mind at the moment, what the farmers are going through, and it’s just a great opportunity for every day people in Canberra to do what they can to contribute to a fantastic cause.”
