Melbourne Market Bushfire Appeal
The MMA and Fresh State have been shocked and saddened to watch the horror of the bushfire crisis unfold across the country.
We express our heartfelt sympathy to all those impacted, and sincerely thank emergency service personnel and volunteers for the ongoing work they do to protect lives, animals and property.
The Melbourne Market is an integral part of the fresh produce and flower industry, and our thoughts are especially with those from farming communities who have lost crops and infrastructure.
To support those who have been affected, we have set up a bushfire disaster appeal, to allow the Market community to come together with a combined donation.
To kick off the appeal, $20,000 has already been deposited into this account, with the MMA and Fresh State pledging $10,000 each.
