Food processor SPC Ardmona has sent $250,000 worth of produce to the typhoon-ravaged Philippines.
The company offered the aid to the Australian Federal Government, which didn’t respond, so now SPC is working with the Philippines Consulate to get the aid to where it is needed.
Eighty tonnes of food, comprising canned peaches, pears and baked beans, will be shipped to feed those in need.
SPC worker and member of the Goulburn Valley Filipino community, Bonnie Demetrillar, says she’s proud that her company is able to send help.
“Even though my family is not affected, I still feel for the people that were affected in the Philippines,” she said.
“Deep in my heart I always include them in my prayers, that some day they may get back into normal life.”
