Geeveston Community Centre (GeCo) - Fresh Choice Food Co-op
At Fresh Choice Food Co-op We will offer members a weekly $20 vegetable & fruit box, containing high quality, fresh and seasonal produce that is fair priced including vegetables, fruit and regular extras, such as free produce, seed packets, recipe sheets and healthy eating information.
Our vegetable & fruit box will contain all of the basics such as locally sourced (where possible)potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, onions, vegetable greens such as broccoli, other seasonal vegetables, garlic and herbs along with seasonal fruits. We aim to vary our weekly vegetable and fruit offerings.
The Fresh Choice Food Co-op is a partnership of Maranoa Heights Community House and Geeveston Community Centre. These two organisations operate as incorporated, Not for Profit Organisations and are members of the community house network of 34 houses in Tasmania.
The Fresh Choice Food Co-op is proudly supported by our peak body, Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania along with its partners in the Towards Sustainable Food Co-ops Project, Eat Well Tasmania and the Heart Foundation. This project received funding from the State Government to enable some Community Houses to partner with their community for the development of projects to increase local access to healthy food.
The Fresh Choice Food Co-op is one of these projects and aims to support fair, diverse and accessible food systems for the benefit of our local community.
The First Choice Food Co-op will work with our partners, local farmers and suppliers, food hubs and Co-ops,
community and health services and groups, to ensure access to fair priced, high quality, fresh and seasonal vegetables and fruit in our local community.
