A week in August

A week in August 2016

There’s a lot that goes into making Produce to the People tick on a weekly basis. Ā This week though special LOVE goes out to the gorgeous people that donated to make what we do such a joy:

We had pumpkins, lemons and parsley from backyards.

Coffee grinds and chaff from Infuse Coffee Burnie for our compost.

Bread from Golden Grain Bakery and Woolworths.

Trout and king fish from a fishmonger in Wynyard.

Boxes of goodies from the staff at Caterpillar Burnie

All sorts of produceĀ from Second Bite.

And of course we have been enjoying LOTS OF CHEESE from Lion Co.

Plus produce grown and gathered from our own farm and tended by the wonderful Kim, Kinglsey and the WFD crew.

All this foodĀ was sharedĀ viaĀ 28 home deliveriesĀ andĀ ten Primary SchoolĀ produce boxes, and anotherĀ 120 homes via people visiting us in our food hub.

All in a weeks work.

PS:Ā And a special shout out must go to our awesome vols Michelle, Caitlin and Margaret who gather and give!
