When you live 600 kms from your local supermarket, you tend to shop for 3-6 months’ worth of food all at once. An unfortunate consequence of supermarkets’ current buying limits on many household essentials, is that people who live on remote stations are finding it very difficult to get the food they need and this is causing added distress, often on top of living with drought.

While we’re all in this together in the fight to stop the spread of Coronavirus, we need to make sure we don’t inadvertently cause harm to our fellow Australians.
