We’ve spent lots of time this autumn collecting apples and distributing them at apple days, but we haven’t really had the opportunity to get many of them to local shops. So as the nights are getting shorter we’re spending a bit of time packing apples and pears from our store into boxes ready for distribution.
We’re also talking to the Cyrenians Good Food program with a view to giving them some of our fruit to be distributed to some of the 50+ homeless shelters they work with. That’s a fantastic result when you think that without our efforts most of these apples would have gone to landfill rather than people’s bellies. Well done everyone!
