New Volunteers, New Fridge…Another Exciting Week for Foodskil.
After a wonderful, relaxing week off, I was straight back in to the swing of things. What another exciting and busy week we have had at Foodskil. Not only did we hold the Cloverdale 2&5 Fresh Food Market and Jam Making sessions, but we also held the Fresh Food Schools Market Stands at Northern Bay College, Hendy St Corio and St Thomas Aquinas School, Plume St, Norlane. Keep an eye out for Amanda Stirret’s first cooking demonstration next Tuesday, 14th August at St Thomas Market. Amanda will be sharing some of her cooking secrets and also provide you with a nutritious recipe that you can make at home.
Foodskil has also been lucky enough to welcome two new volunteers; Guor and Rebekah.
Guor is a south Sudanese student who is currently studying his Diploma of Welfare at the Gordon. He has kindly volunteered his time in the 2&5 Shop so if you do happen to see him on your next visit, don’t be shy in introducing yourself as I’m sure he would be more than happy to show you our new seasons’ produce.
Rebekah is a Gordon hospitality student and has also kindly volunteered her time to Foodskil by making soup and fresh fruit salad. Keep an eye out in the shop for her delicious creations.
On another exciting note, we have purchased a fridge! This means that we can now start selling cheese and local organic yoghurt For a tasty, nutritious snack, try our local organic yoghurt served with our Fresh Fruit Salad. It’s one of my favourite snacks, and one I’m sure you will also enjoy.
I would also like to thank all that have been supporting and spreading the word about Foodskil. Word is certainly getting around and this means we can continue to support our local suppliers and provide affordable, high quality produce to the local community. It has also been lovely to hear the positive feedback that we have been receiving from the local community.
Until next time, keep happy and healthy and remember your 2 servings of fruit and 5 servings of vegetables a day.
