Hello. We are Share Fresh.

Hello. We are Share Fresh.

Can we improve our nutrition and do some good things along the way? Can we help the biodiversity and the planet? I have been thinking about this a lot, and, like many of you, I want to be part of the solution. 

My name is George. I’m a graduate in Sports Science and I have a passion for healthy eating and healthy living in general. 

I have a background in logistics and a great appetite for tasty food. I want to share my passion for healthy living with others, but also help the people in my community.

Nearly 2 million Londoners (400k of these are children) struggle to afford or get access to enough food, according to the latest statistics. And this report https://www.london.gov.uk/press-releases/mayoral/nearly-two-million-londoners-struggle-for-food came out in June 2019, long before the pandemic! 

Share Fresh is an amazing opportunity not only for you to feel better on a personal level thanks to good nutrition, but also to feel good, knowing that you’ve contributed towards making a donation of the same goodies to someone else in our community who isn’t as fortunate.

On our website we have a section called “Register for Help”. Here, anybody, who is in need, for whatever reason, of fresh food, can come and enter their details; we take care of the rest. We box up a great selection of fruit and veg and we deliver it straight to their door – fresh, tasty and free.

 

Mens sana in corpore sano – A healthy mind in a healthy body!  Nutrition is hugely important, because it has some really positive knock-on effects. If we eat well, we feel better about ourselves. We’re then fuelled to do great things and to think clearly about the choices we make. Plus, if by eating well we can contribute to the environment we’re in, then that just leads to a better life all-round. I’m not saying we can change the world with a box of broccoli, but it’s surely a step in the right direction.

We are what we eat, and so it’s the fresher the better when it comes to good food. You can’t get fresher than organic fruits and veggies that have been locally sourced (whenever possible, bananas don’t grow in Kent yet!) and carefully selected before being boxed up and driven straight to your door. 

Why organic?

Because they are free of GMO (genetically modified) ingredients, pesticides and antibiotics. Because I want my apples to taste like apples, I want my tomatoes to smell like tomatoes. And because it helps biodiversity. The worms and the microorganisms in organic soil feed the plant with good nutrients and the plant feeds them back. We all have a part to play.

 

Wastage. What wastage!?

I get my delivery of fresh produce from organic farms and suppliers, I select the best and deliver the boxes (donation boxes included) as urgently as possible. I personally take any produce left over to food banks, and I make sure other people enjoy these tasty goodies. 

I may not be able to achieve my dream of feeding everyone on the planet (yet), but I can certainly do my bit right here in London.

And a little more about me? Well, I love music festivals and football (not that we can enjoy much of those things right now), but when it comes to championing icons and stars, I say give it up for our farmers! Yes, I’m a little crazy…

Keep an eye on the Share Fresh blog page for news about how I intend to grow the Share Fresh initiative, and if you’d like to get involved on any level with our venture, give me a shout!

 

Eat Well

Fresh fruit and vegetables are such an important part of a healthy and balanced diet. By sourcing and selecting the best of the bunch, you can be sure you’re getting the freshest fruit and the most vibrant veg – perfect for eating well and feeling great.

Promote Sustainability

By choosing to buy your fruit and veg from Share Fresh, you know you’re getting quality fresh produce that’s both in season and locally sourced (when possible), so you’re really playing your part in promoting good farming practices and environmental sustainability.

Do Good

20% from the sale of every box on our site goes straight into a fund to help us box up a donation of fresh fruit and veg for someone in our community who really needs it. All you need to do is buy your box, wait for your free delivery, and enjoy eating well and doing good in the process!
