Grow or cook extra vegetables to donate

Health and hospitals

Grow or cook extra vegetables to donate to projects and to those most in need.

Covid may have boosted home cooking and more localized food purchasing but for a growing number of people it is causing additional barriers in the access to vegetables and healthy food.

Many organisations, from allotments to community or Council run projects and restaurants are stepping in to ensure those most in need have access to fresh vegetables.

Are you growing an extra row at your allotment or community garden to donate? Are you cooking with fresh vegetables and ensuring meals for those in need contain at least two portions of vegetables? Are you redirecting surplus vegetables to those most in need? We would like to hear from you.
