Advice on organising volunteer drivers and vehicles
Hi there. I have been recommended to get in touch with Fiona Bell. I have been a volunteer coordinator of an Edible Garden. It has been in the grounds of a primary school in Bridport, Dorset, for eight years. It is all about education - teaching children about how to grow and cook food as well as providing fresh fruit and veg for the school kitchen. Many of the families are vulnerable. This year is different! On 23rd March only key worker and vulnerable kids remained in school. Come the end of term a glut stall began with allotment keepers and the Edible Garden giving away spare produce. In September the stall moved to another town site. The project mushroomed and now is connected to several community food groups and an independent Fridge. In these times (permanent?) of food poverty this stall is very busy and links to other centres. To deliver produce, we rely on one volunteer who has a large car. Have you, at Crop Drop, experience on how to organise more volunteer drivers and vehicles to take part in this distribution ?
