Our food system in the UK has grown to prize uniformity over taste and planet. This means fruit & veg that’s fresh and perfectly delicious but doesn’t look quite right by supermarket standards is left behind.
What's more, we live in a world where on-demand everything is the norm. This means farmers are left with surplus veg no matter how you slice it. If we want blackberries in January and Brussels sprouts in June, we can walk into almost any supermarket and pick them off the shelf. However, this isn’t how nature works.
This is where we come in. Every week we speak to farmers who’ve got an abundance of perfectly tasty produce on their hands, and deliver it directly to you.Visit Website

Charly and Becca were secondary school teachers in North West London when they witnessed the multiple barriers facing girls in their classrooms;the pressure to conform to ideals; a lack of confidence and self-belief; a lack of professional female role models in their networks.
They established a one-to-one mentoring scheme for 30 girls in 2013, based on research showing that conversations and personal relationships could have a big impact on challenging stereotypes and expectations. They believed that the girls needed a greater access to opportunities, but also the confidence to seize those opportunities and the skills to thrive in them.
The Girls’ Network mentoring was soon in high demand, and now operates across Greater London, Sussex, Portsmouth, the West Midlands, Greater Manchester, the North East, Tees Valley, and Liverpool City Region, working with more than 1,000 girls each year.Visit Website
