Thanks to Mandira at the Christmas Fair Food warehouse
Reciprocity

This year more than any other there seems a lot to be thankful for.

So, in this last week of our our year I’d like to say thanks;

To all of you for your support, for your patience & so many kind words, for giving back to our farmers after the bushfires, for your Hello Vegetable stories and pictures, for paying-it-forward with Open Table and for helping Mo smile again

Thanks to our customer service team who so patiently and persistently worked through thousands of emails adnd phone calls to put things right and help us get our Fair Food each week. 

Thanks to our packing crew – who this year faced almost impossible hurdles and responded with hard work, care for each other, ingenuity and enormous grace.

Thanks to the Fair Food drivers – who were on the front line all year  – who were asked to work late through the lockdowns until every order was delivered and did it with a smile.

Thanks to our buyers, our managers and our marketers – for somehow finding enough food through all the shortages, for keeping us COVID-safe for eight long months, for letting us know what was happening and that everything was going to be okay.

And thanks of course to the farmers and makers who, when we needed them in overwhelming numbers, grew more, harvested more, milled more, baked more and fermented more food than they had ever done before.

Below is a list of all of the farmers, makers and suppliers who fed us this year….
