The Food Hub is reaching capacity in the Forest. This is wonderful news in terms of the success of local / organic produce and the numbers of people now able to access it, but such a shame when we have to turn orders away. Each week we have to limit the number of boxes we can pack, due to the size of our packing space, how many boxes we can fit in the van, and how many drop-offs we can do in one van round.
We are now hoping to expand the food hub model to surrounding areas. We would love to meet like-minded people in those areas, to talk about how it could work, and to share our experience and resources. Some of them may be interested in being producers, customers or volunteers. We don’t want to compete with local businesses, but to work with them to everyone’s benefit.
To this end we have organised a public meeting for people in the Ross and Newent areas – details are on the poster below. If any of you live in those areas or are interested in getting involved, please come along if you can! Please also pass the message on to anyone you know who you think might be interested. We’ll also be posting this on Facebook and Twitter shortly – any sharing or re-tweeting is much appreciated – thanks in advance!
