Veg Box Newsletter w/c 29.07.19

Hello Folks,


Our market gardens are keeping our growers incredibly busy at the moment, with huge harvests – all the veg in the week’s boxes, aside from potatoes, is Locavore grown! For those of you with a standard or larger veg box, you’ll all have a bumper bag of Westland Winter kale.

Queen’s Park Govanhill Parish Church Foodbank told us that they are trying to eliminate plastic from their packaging. Like most other small foodbanks they are dependent on donations, which makes their efforts to be sustainable harder. The Good Food Fund therefore now sends paper bags along to them with the weekly donations of fruit. Thanks to your ongoing generous donations it is easy enough for the GFF to do this and we have extended the bag donatios to include Govan Community Project and Central and West Integration Network’s foodbanks.

We’ll be delivering meat 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!
