Each Four’N Twenty Australia Meat Pie sold at the Friday night and Saturday games at the MCG will see Four’N Twenty contribute 50 cents to the Walking Wounded, the not for profit charity supporting the well being and psychological rehabilitation of returned Australian soldiers.
Four’N Twenty has baked 25,000 Australia Meat Pies for the occasion.
Stuart Smyth, GM marketing and innovation, Patties Foods says Four’N Twenty has long been known as the taste of Australia, so why not also make it the shape of Australia?
“Australia Meat Pies are a one-off which we hope footy fans will love at the Anzac round matches at the ‘G, while also helping a great Australian cause, Walking Wounded,” Mr Smyth said.
Walking Wounded Executive Officer, Brad Skinner, said the Four’N Twenty initiative was a great fund-raiser and would assist in the charity’s work rehabilitating and re-educating former Australian Soldiers who have suffered either physically or mentally from their time in service.
“Re-training, re-education, and re-integration is a different road for each former Australian Soldier. Anything we can do to assist this journey is a small cost compared to the enormous sacrifice they have already made,” Skinner said.
