Riverford Veg Boxes are a great way to make sure that you have plenty of seasonal vegetables on a weekly basis and at the moment they are running a Veg Box for School Scheme. I previously reviewed one of Riverford's Recipe Boxes here which you may find interesting and the food was really good.
To register for the scheme, the school would need to fill out the registration form online, Riverford would then call the school with a unique ID number. The school can then send out details of the scheme to parents and for everyone that signs up £15 will be donated to your school.
I received a Veg Box last week and all of the produce was fresh and smelt divine, the carrots had just been pulled up out of the ground and the fresh peas were amazing. Below is a list of what I received:
- potatoes UK
- carrots UK
- leeks UK
- swede UK
- garden peas ES
- savoy cabbage UK
- rocket IT
- courgettes IT/E
- tomatoes ES
- portobello mushrooms UK
What better way to introduce children to a wide variety of seasonal vegetables and the large portion sizes mean you will have enough for several recipes. The large Veg Box I received costs £17.25 and can be order on a one off basis or repeated weekly, fortnightly or even monthly.
I received this Veg Box free of charge for the purpose of this review but the opinion is my own.
