Eating at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day is a key part of a healthy diet and we all know that eating healthily not only makes you look and feel better but could also reduce your chance of getting diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.
Getting your fruit and vegetables from a food co-op throughout the year could also save you around £200 per year.
A food co-op is a simple system through which people can access affordable, quality fresh fruit and vegetables on a weekly basis at a local community venue. The food co-ops are run by local volunteers and work by directly linking the local community to local suppliers. A bag of fruit or vegetables bought from a food co-op typically costs around £3 and with around 300 food co-ops across Wales there’s bound to be one near you.
