Businesses mucking in to restock the pantry

BAYER Crop Science has teamed up with Northern AgriServices to donate $500 to the South Burnett Pantry.

The two businesses have a deal whereby Bayer will donate money to a nominated charity if Northern AgriServices sells a certain amount of Bayer's product.

Mark Schmidt, from Northern AgriServices, said it was a good result for the local charity.

"Basically, one of the guys that volunteers at the South Burnett Pantry is a customer of ours,” Mr Schmidt said.

"They spoke to us about what the pantry does for the community. We thought it was something out of the box that helps people in need, it is an excellent organisation to donate the money to.”

The South Burnett Pantry provides cheap food hampers for families and individuals in need.

Recipients pay a small fee and are given a bag they can fill with items from the pantry's shelves and fridges.

Mr Schmidt reckons the South Burnett Pantry offers a much-needed service.

"We're just trying to help as much as we can in the community,” he said.
