In response to the current COVID-19 challenges, Harvest Newrybar, have created a community service by offering nutrient-dense food essentials boxes at an affordable price-point.
This new initiative supports local family-run fruit and vegetable wholesalers that are feeling the effects of limited trade, due to closed restaurants and farmers markets, by turning produce into immune-boosting essentials boxes.
From the Newrybar Hall
Due to customer demand, the Ballina Council have offered the team at Harvest, the historic Newrybar Hall to have a larger space for production lines to supply the community.
Harvest Newrybar co-owner, Tristan Grier said that after talking with local farmers and vegetable suppliers, whom they have been working with for over 15 years, they realised that by working together we could create a product that people need during these uncertain times.
‘This is about keeping the supply chain in business more than making a profit. We have made them as affordable as possible for consumers. Now, more than ever, it is vital that our community is working together, eating well, and ensuring our immune system is supported.’
Food delivery Hot Line
Ballina Shire Councillor Sharon Cadwallader has instigated the setting up of a council Hot Line to facilitate residents, particularly the elderly, in isolation getting deliveries of food and essentials from the regions growers, restaurants and businesses. Harvest Newrybar is one of the first participating businesses.
The hotline will operate from 9 till 5 Monday to Friday, the number is 1300 864 444.
For Byron Shire residents the Harvest Market Place is available for $50 every Friday (pick up is between 3-6pm Friday and delivery on Saturday mornings).
Orders can be made via @BOPPLE.APP which you can download from the App Store, or order through the Bopple website: https://bopple.app/menu/5020.
