Tasty display at Kempsey Library

Meat pie with sauce

Did you know that Australians eat an estimated 270 million meat pies a year? New Zealanders share this tradition with Australians and in fact eat more meat pies on average than Australians - 15 per year compared with 12 for Australians.

Learn more fascinating facts about this popular food in the “Meat Pie - Australia’s fast food” display at Kempsey Library. The display was created by the Australian Society for History of Engineering and Technology (ASHET) with the assistance of a grant from the Australian Government under its Your Community Heritage program, and is currently touring public libraries throughout New South Wales.

The display may be viewed during regular library opening hours from Monday 11 July through to Thursday 28 July.

Group visits are welcome, please call the library for more information. Further information about the display is available at the ASHET website at www.ashet.org.au/projects/the-meat-pie
