Order by Monday 25 January for Pick Up Thursday 28 January
Kia Ora Friends and Neighbours,
Foodtogether is a social enterprise with roots going back over 25 years. We are all about supporting locals to come together to operate produce co-ops, where people get to know each, have fun, and access wholesale fresh produce at great prices.
We have recently been offering a delivery service in Palmerston North and beyond and a website to order through. These have caused some technical issues as we have attempted to offer a centralized system for the hubs.
The website has met a need during lockdown restrictions but we are now excited to refocus back into supporting our local community co-ops who will be promoting, collecting orders through a bank transfer system, packing, and distributing to an ever-increasing network of pick up points. This will mean that after a grace period of 2 weeks we will completely transfer the ordering and payment system from the website to the local co-op who will be in touch through a new Facebook page and email. This will also mean that we will no longer be offering a delivered option but focusing on building a network of local pick up locations that will connect people and save communities money.
Can you start a pickup point in your neighbourhood, reach out to the Vege Hub at St. Matthew’s, Awapuni, to see how we can make this happen.
Driving our decision is the need to better serve local communities at this time with a community co-op where local people can come and connect as well as streamlining and improving the value of the packs so that everyone wins.
Please join the Foodtogether network and spread the word as we all come together around healthy fresh food.
