An "uplifting, fun and exciting day" is on the cards when the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) makes an Operation Drought Relief stop in the region on Friday.
The team will be in Narrabri to deliver 400 tonnes of livestock pellets to its list of eligible farmers, and to host a free barbecue lunch and coffee for all on the land in the Namoi Valley.
The pellets should feed some 10,000 animals in the area for a month, and it's intended the Farmers Community Connect lunch will fuel farmers' spirits.
RRT chairman Ron Arckoll said the lunch was"about bringing together both farmers and the community to grab a burger and coffee, have a chat with mates and support each other through some tough times".
"It's important for Australians to continue to support each other as this longstanding disaster continues to impact Aussies in the bush," he said.
Groups such as vets, rural financial counsellors, mental health services and the ATO will also give information and support.
The Rapid Relief Team is a global charity group, comprised mainly of volunteers from the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church.
