Both Steve & Linda's Supa IGA, Michael's SUPA IGA from Leongatha, Korumburra and Fairleys SUPA IGA Shepparton have donated in excess of $100,000 raised through their IGA Community Chest to the Rural Financial Counselling Service to support local dairy farmers recently.

In a recent article in The Adviser it was reported that "....FAIRLEYS SUPA IGA is throwing its support behind dairy farmers, launching a Dairy Farmers Milk Crisis appeal, kicking it off with a $20,000 donation to go toward grocery vouchers for farmers in need.

The appeal, which is being run in conjunction with Lions International, Need for Feed Disaster Relief, AgBiz Assist and Rural Financial Counselling Service – Victoria North East, is aiming to raise $100,000 through Victoria’s IGA stores as a start, with plans to continue raising funds as assistance is needed.

Company director for Michael’s/Fairleys SUPA IGA stores, Michael Lorenz said, “We are hoping to raise more than the $100,000, which will be done through our Community Rewards Program. Customers will be able to scan their rewards card to make donations to the appeal...."

Food vouchers made available have been distributed disadvantaged farmers throughout the Goulburn Valley and North East Victoria by the Rural Financial Counsellors from RFCVicNE.

Recipients of these vouchers have been very appreciative of the support being provided at this time.
