Veg Box Newsletter w/c 05.08.19

Hello Folks,


Our Locavore growers are extremely busy at the moment with an abundance of produce being harvested from the Locavore farms. Luckily for you, a lot of this produce is going straight into the veg boxes this week, with Locavore grown chard, kale, french beans, courgettes and parsley all making appearances. Looking for different ways to cook with courgettes? Check out our courgette veggiepedia page here!

In July the Good Food Fund sent out £ 1730.52 worth of fruit and veg to our partners. Govan Community Project recently did a consultation with the people who come to their foodbank and found out that they would like to receive tomatoes as well as seasonal fruit such as strawberries and cherries. Thanks to your generous donations we have been sending these items over to GCP. The fact that we are able to offer an element of choice to our partners means that your donations don’t just fund fresh fruit and vegetables, but also help to enhance the dignity in emergency food projects.

We’ll be delivering cheese boxes and chilled vegan selections 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!
