Food Connect – Week 1 & 2

A couple of weeks ago I signed up for Food Connect (http://www.foodconnect.com.au/ ).

Food Connect is an award winning social business that works in collaboration with brilliant local farmers around Brisbane to deliver the best food in the world efficiently, affordably and equitably. Our unique distribution system is flexible, convenient and most of all healthy for you and your community. We are passionate about changing the way food is grown and distributed in this and any country where exploitation of farmers and customers is rampant.

What I love about Food Connect and what prompted me to join is that the food is organic and local, which means I know I’m not getting any GM food and that more of the money I’m spending is getting to the farmers who work so hard to produce such lovely food.

I’m really excited about it and I’m getting the gourmet box which is a mix of vegetables and fruits. The produce you get is seasonal and you don’t always know what you’re going to get so I’m expecting it will really broaden the range of dishes I cook. I can’t wait to explore new vegetables or fruit that I haven’t eaten before or that I haven’t cooked before. I think it will also be a good way to get more fruit and vege in our diet.
