The Hooky Food Assembly
Do you LOVE the idea of buying local food from producers right on your doorstep? Would you like to know exactly where your food is coming from? Are you PASSIONATE about helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint?
Well, we have very exciting news for you! In the coming months, we will be launching a Food Assembly, right here in Hook Norton. It will be a first for North Oxfordshire.
The Food Assembly brings together people in our community to buy local food, drink, and other supplies directly from local producers. The local produce is sold online where members of the community can pre-order and pay for what they would like to pick up from a weekly collection point.
At the heart of The Food Assembly is an amazing network of local people who are passionate about bringing local supplies to their community.
Hook Norton Brewery has kindly agreed to be our host for the weekly collection and our proposed time slot is currently 16:00 - 18:00 (possibly 16:30-18:30 dependent on feedback) on Thursdays from the Visitors Centre.
We have just started to contact local producers and we would like you to register as a member of the Food Assembly, so you can support local businesses by being a customer.
Once we have signed up enough suppliers (at least 30 and preferably more), and customers, (we need around 100), we will launch the Hooky Food Assembly.
