It’s been a wild week of weather for Queensland – I know in my local area, many homes have been affected by floodwaters and the clean-up will be massive. As a mum with small kids, it’s easy to feel like there’s nothing much you can really do – we can’t just don the gum boots and shovels and get out there with the “Mud Army”. But there is something we can do – Baked Relief!
This is an amazing movement started after the 2011 by Danielle Crismani. Essentially, it’s all about getting food out to the flood victims and amazing teams of volunteers, who are working tirelessly to get our city (and state) back on track.
This whole situation has been a bit hard for my almost-three-year-old to get her head around. But to actually get her involved in the process and explain what we were doing, has really given her a lot more understanding. She loved taking the biscuits down to our local drop-off point and was really proud of being able to help.
Here’s a perfect Baked Relief recipe (taken from www.bestrecipes.com.au) – super quick, easy, great for the kids to help out, and a great little energy-boosting snack for all the hard-working flood recovery crews.
Keep up the great work everyone!
