Crowd Harvest: Tomatoes for Easter

Crowd Harvest: Tomatoes for Easter

Individual excess = Community abundance
Anyone growing tomatoes in their own backyard inevitably produces excess - more than one family can consume. At the end of summertime, gardeners are overwhelmed with tomatoes!
Melbourne food relief providers are currently met with higher demand for emergency assistance than they can manage.
If you would like to help, please take any excess home grown tomatoes to one of the following NFPs at the listed opening times.  From the CBD to Epping, from Footscray to Rowville, there will be a place near you ready to receive your excess tomatoes. The NFPs will either distribute fresh or preserve the tomatoes as Passata, Chutney, Sundried or Dell'Olio, and then distribute through their food relief programs.
Please help share the news by forwarding this email to a friend, or pressing 'like' and 'sharing' on Facebook:
