Delivering Fresh Produce

Juri Jennings, displaced from work by COVID-19, started a bike delivery business to deliver groceries in Port Townsend WA: Peddler PT. Her website has a donation link for folks to pay it forward for those who need home delivery, but may not be able to afford it. Check out her site HERE or above.

Juri’s first delivery on 9/8/20 to the PT Foodbank: 115 pounds of fresh vegetables from Dundee Hill Community Garden and the Quimper Grange Foodbank Garden. In the box she’s holding are hand-built salads with calendula blossoms, in her other, a freshly delivered cucumber!

Yesterday, to reduce car traffic and make delivery easier, she began a route from Foodbank and Community Gardens and home gardens to deliver to the Port Townsend Foodbank. It should be noted that in a year, gleaned and donated fresh produce totals over 20,000 pounds, conservatively.
