Veg Box Newsletter w/c 10.06.19

Hello Folks,

The Good Food Fund would like to pass on thanks from Auldhouse Community Church foodbank. We have recently started supplying them with fresh fruit and veg using your donations. The foodbank has been running for 5 years and feeds an average of 30 people each week. ‘It has all been non perishable items and our customers have been delighted to start receiving fresh fruit and vegetables from Locavore’s Good Food Fund, and we are so pleased to be able to offer them good quality healthy produce.’

We’ll be delivering cheese boxes and chilled vegan boxes alongside our veg boxes this week. You can find more information about our monthly specials here, as well as their delivery schedule. If you’d like to add one to your order, drop us an email at subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org.

Check out storage guidance here for helpful tips and tricks on how to prolong the life of your fresh produce. If you’re wondering where your veg comes from, have a look at these maps. You can also join your fellow subscribers over in the Facebook group and check out our Veggiepedia!
