Fresh food direct to Docklands

03 Jun 2010

Alison Kinkade

Urban Reforestation is teaming up with organic food delivery service, CERES Food Connect, to bring Docklands residents and workers fresh fruit and vegies.

Dock 5 resident, Corinne Civalleri, said she and Urban Reforestation Founder, Emily Ballantyne-Brodie, talked about organising a delivery of fresh fruit and vegies and Emily suggested CERES Food Connect.

“CERES is a well-know organisation and they deliver to drop-off points, which they call City Cousins, and we have applied for Urban Reforestation’s Merchant St shop to be a City Cousin,” Corinne said.

Starting July 5, Docklanders will be able to pick-up fresh, organic fruit and vegies from the Merchant St shop.

“People can just go online and pick a box of fresh food, pay for it and then it will be delivered to the shop where they can pick it up,” Corinne said.

“But before it can start we need to have at least 10 people to be considered a City Cousin, so I need anyone who is interested to email me their interest and their preferred day of delivery.”

Corinne said the philosophy of Urban Reforestation was to promote good things for the environment such as recycling, and the food delivery service would be another way people could help.

“Eating local and organic fruit and vegies is like voting because you show the industry, governments and the big grocery stores what you like and that forces them to change,” she said.

CERES Food Connect is a not-for-profit organisation that provides seasonal, local and organic fresh food in a manner which reduces food kilometres, supports local producers, provides good value to its customers and pays farmers a good price.

The fresh food is chemical free and, in an effort to reduce waste, they do not individually package the food.

“I will be available at the shop for pick up from 4.30-5.30pm and other times during the day can also be arranged,” Corinne said.
