Hey kids of Food Connect!
Want to win a prize for getting creative, AND help us say thanks to our farmer friends these school holidays?
Our farmers have had a very busy couple of months growing all of our fruit and vegetables through drought, flood and more, and we'd love your help showing them how much the Food Connect community appreciates them and their hard work.
These school holidays, draw or craft (recycled materials are encouraged!) a card for our farmers, and get a grown up to help you send it to us - just put it back in your Food Connect box for pick-up, or take a photo and email it to email@example.com) between now and the week school goes back. We'll then send it on to one of our farmers!
The Food Connect team will pick two of our favourite cards to win one of our kitchen garden or bee-friendly seed packs from Salisbury Grange, so you can try your hand at farming too!
Make sure you tell the farmer your name and how old you are in your message - we'll be picking one winner under 9, and another one aged between 10 and 14).
With all the uncertainty that surrounds us at the moment one thing is for certain, disruption is here to stay - and we’re excited! Obviously I’m not talking about Covid, even though it certainly prised open some big fault lines.
So dear eater, before we all fall over the line and take a well deserved break, there are some momentous things that we are keen to double down on with your participation over the next little while.
