These past few months have seen an unexpected, devastating crisis affect populations across the Globe. So many changes happened in the blink of an eye, and all of us are slowly adjusting to a new way of living.
At Taste the Barossa, we are saddened that currently we are unable to show people the stunning regions of the Barossa Valley. However, in times of uncertainty and change, we can make the most of it by taking action in areas of life that we can control.
Which is why we have chosen to shift our efforts towards supporting our long term charity, The Little Heroes Foundation. We have been a proud supporter of this charity for years, running competitions and fundraisers.
The Little Heroes Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation based in South Australia, dedicated to providing seriously ill children and their families with the tools, support and equipment to ensure that they have access to the care they deserve — no matter how rare their diagnosis is.
Over 20 years, this organisation has contributed around $20 million for lifesaving facilities and equipment at Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital. They have also offered guidance, financial assistance and initiatives to help provide daily support to families through their Little Heroes Care program.
The work done by Little Heroes Foundation is a vital part of our community and at Taste the Barossa, we want to do our part to ensure they can keep providing.
The current initiative at Taste the Barossa is a fundraiser through creating hampers filled with goods and products local to the Barossa region. This hamper will showcase why the Barossa is the best food and wine region in South Australia. It offers decadent produce such as wine, chocolates, pickles, meats and various other small goods. It’s a great way to have a sneak peak of the true Barossa experience.
These hampers contain approx $100 worth of produce, cost $60 to put together and will be selling for $99.
100% of the profits (around $40 per basket) will go to The Little Heroes Foundation. The delivery of these hampers in the Adelaide Metro Area will be taken care of by Taste the Barossa free of charge using our tour guides and buses.
Taste the Barossa and our dedicated staff is trying our best to do what we can in these trying times. We are grateful for your support in whatever manner you can.
