22 23 Half a million meals!

We distributed another 8,000 plus bags this year, taking the total since launch to over 48,000.  This means that our families have now cooked a whopping 580,000 individual, nutritious meals – well done families, well done team!

We said a fond farewell to a couple of schools during this academic year as they reached the end of the project.  It’s always bittersweet moving on to pastures new, but hopefully the Farm Fresh cookbook, with our easy-to-make recipes will keep people inspired to keep on cooking tasty meals.

The gardening project went out to schools again this spring with a donation of compost from Dobbies Garden Centre, Shenstone.  Growing your own not only helps to teach children where their food comes from, but research shows they are more likely to try produce they have grown themselves – win, win!

Huge thanks as always, go out to our financial supporters this year as well as to our wonderful volunteers of course. We had extra help on the stalls from the corporate world, with visitors from Handelsbanken in Stafford, Mercer Farming in Barton under Needwood and Harrods in London.  (Yes, that Harrods!😁) We’re also very grateful for the huge donation of potatoes and pumpkins that we received from a local farmer which supplemented our weekly deliveries and of course thanks always go to all our suppliers providing us with the top quality produce that our families know and love.
