Veg Box Newsletter w/c 22.07.19

Hello Folks,


Thank you for your continued support for the Good Food Fund. In June 2019 we sent out £1,313.28 worth of fruit and veg to our partners. All the projects we support are foodbanks or community meals that work with people living in food poverty. When you buy items in supermarkets and put them into the foodbank basket, the supermarket will still be making their regular profit on your donation. We use your donations to buy fruit and veg at cost price and do not make a profit from poverty.

We’ll be delivering sweet and savoury treat boxes alongside our veg boxes this week. Find out what’s in them below. 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!
