Fyne Futures on the island of Bute have seen a significant increase in need and demand for their Veg Box deliveries. Their Green Box Scheme has been developed to provide affordable healthy fresh fruit and veg for the Isle of Bute community. This involves a box of fresh, seasonal fruit & vegetables being delivered to your door on a weekly basis at a fixed rate.
The Green Box contains a mix of freshly picked produce from the garden and additional UK-sourced produce purchased at a fruit market. This produce has a low carbon footprint, is seasonal, and where possible organic.
The Team at Bute Produce are delivering boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables to around 100 households on the island on a weekly basis, while providing employment and training opportunities using safe distancing measures to continue to grow fresh produce locally. This has helped supply fresh food to households which are isolating or shielding, and ensures that all in the community are still able to access healthy options during lockdown.
