Most of our drop points are currently open and have spaces available.
If you'd like to be added to the waiting list for a closed drop point email email@example.com.
We’re working hard to ensure any disruption to our supply chain is minimal, and that collection arrangements enable social distancing.
Our drop points in cafes are closed for the time being, but we will revisit this in the future.
Could you help your neighbours?
We would like to offer any customers who are ill or in isolation because of COVID-19 a way to still receive their bags without risking their health. We hope to connect you with other Crop Droppers in your area that might be able to drop your bags off for you. If you're on Facebook, join our facebook group where you can start organising among yourselves. We do not advise any unnecessary interactions, but simply placing a bag of veg at a front gate, door or garden for a housebound person to collect later. Again, please use the guidelines set forth by the health services and your best judgment before contacting us.
If you're not on facebook then get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to get our produce to you or connect you with your fellow Crop Droppers.
Staying safe and healthy
We maintain good hygiene practices with sanitising and hand-washing for all staff and volunteers, as well as asking anyone exhibiting symptoms to stay home.
Official guidance currently states: “Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. Before preparing or eating food it is important to always wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds for general food safety.” We also remind you to thoroughly wash your fruit and veg when you get it home.
Keeping you fed
As long as there's still food growing and farmers delivering, we will keep running the box scheme. Growing and sharing food through community networks is more vital than ever and we want you to still be able to eat the most nutritious food in town!
Your Crop Drop team is small, but hard working and committed to the communities it serves. Due to increased workload we may not be able to respond to you immediately but we will make sure you receive all the info you need of any changes that affect you.
