HUGE April of produce. HUGE.
I’ve been adding up and between the produce we receive from farmers, backyard growers, Golden Grain Bakery and the many Woolworths Supermarkets Fresh Food Rescue program supermarkets we work with we have had a whopping 2560 + kilos of produce. That comes in at an approximate $19K market value.
And that is not including the GIANT PUMPKIN, because we have no idea what that weighed!
Can I just say WOWSERS? WOWSERS!
All the produce has been shared between Mission in Burnie, the Burnie Community House, The Salvos in Burnie, Eastern Shore Community House, Wyndarra in Smithton, Grove House, Warrawee Women’s Shelter, OOSH Burnie and up to 20 Primary Schools between Forth and Wynyard. The giant pumpkin went to the Central Coast Community House (AND I have asked them to save the seeds!).
Whatever will May bring?
PS: it’s that time of year again where we wait to see if we will receive funding to continue growing Produce to the People. Fingers crossed for us? And feel free to lobby on our behalf!
