USING PRODUCE FOR GOOD
Since the 1970s, we’ve had a strong relationship with the Hemmes Family. This homegrown Sydney-based hospitality brand is responsible for some of the most impressive kitchens in the country, and we are proud to supply them with the freshest produce.
As a company, we had started looking at ways we can spread our wings and help our wider community in the same way. So when the team at Merivale introduced us to Bayside Women’s Shelter two month ago, we couldn’t have been more excited to start helping immediately. The Bayside Women’s Shelter is an incredible not-for-profit organisation that seeks to provide safety and care to women and children in crisis. The shelter provides facilities that make families feel at home, including rooms to sleep and a kitchen area to prepare meals, and what does a home-cooked meal need? Fresh produce to cook with!
We’ve decided to deepen our bonds with this amazing organisation and go one step further than donating. From this week onwards, we’re proud to start donating fresh fruit and vegetables to help families at the shelter prepare delicious and nutritious meals in a comfortable and homely environment. Our weekly delivery is initially sent to Merivale’s Coogee Pavilion, from where a member of the team will deliver it to the Shelter on our behalf.
We believe in doing what we can to give back, and hope that this small gesture from us and the team at Merivale will go a long way to help show the families of Bayside that they have our care and support when the road ahead isn’t steady.
