RPH and Wesley Community Action organise 11 fruit and vege co-ops across the greater Wellington region, including Featherston.

Anyone can join and there’s likely to be a pick-up point near you.

The cost is $12 week ($15 in Kāpiti for a larger order) for a bag of seasonal fruit and a bag of seasonal vegetables. The estimated retail value of each individual order is usually over $20.

There’s often FREE cooking lessons on offer, and RPH's nutrition team provides a weekly meal plan based on what's in each co-op delivery.

So that’s your food week sorted.

How does it work?

You place your order at least one week in advance and you can order as many packs as you like, whenever you like. There is no commitment to order every week.

Every week, the Fruit and Vegetable Coordinator purchases bulk supplies of healthy seasonal fruit and vegetables. The produce is delivered the following Tuesday or Thursday to the packing hubs. The volunteers help pack the orders ready for pickup or to be delivered to the distribution hubs. The families that placed their orders the previous week are able to pick up their produce packs.

Please note: Eastern Suburbs Co-op is now part of the Newtown Coop.
