Just in case you wondered about how fantastic Produce to the People really is and the impact it is having, here is some data from the Salvos Family Support office in Burnie:
“We do an average of 156 interview per month. These interviews can be for single clients as well as families – some of them quite large. Our estimation is that about 60% of these people have helped themselves to the fruit and veggies you provided.”
There are a couple of important details here…….one is the fact that Salvos see that number of people in a month just via their Family Support office in our community, and secondly that 60% of them…….that’s around 90 people a month, are taking your donated fruit and vegetables home for their families.
Thank you all so much for being involved and please, let’s keep up this great work!
