Veg Box Newsletter 8/9/17

Hello Folks,

Thank you all for your wonderful entries to the Munch of the Month competition, and congratulations to Jennifer, our August winner! Please do continue posting your veg box creations on social media with the tags #locavoremm and #locavorevegbox for our September edition of the competition. If you haven’t already, join our veg box community over on Facebook.

As ever, check out our veggiepedia for recipe suggestions and more information on the veg that you’re getting in your veg boxes, including tomatoes and kale.

The Open Food Network is now open for orders to be delivered with next week’s delivery. We’ve added pears to the offering, and Kim’s bouquets are still available to order for delivery.

Unfortunately we had a last minute pallet-stuck-at-a-farm situation this week, meaning that the standard, large and extra large boxes are down in value. We’re going to be making this value up with your next delivery, when you’ll get a bumper box.
