Creamy Chorizo Pasta with Jerry Mai

At Norco we are partnering with Plate For A Mate to support The Black Dog Institute to turn ground breaking research into lifesaving action and support the mental health of Aussie Farmers. More than half of Australian farmers agree mental health is a growing concern in their community, with close to a third of Aussie farmers report declining mental health over the years. While mental illness doesn’t discriminate and it affects people from all walks of life — over 60% of our farmers have said they have experienced anxiety and 45% have experienced bouts of depression. Support our Aussie farmers and donate today visit Plate For A Mate.
