    The morning delivery slot is from 9am to noon OR the afternoon delivery slot is from noon to 3pm. The third-party drivers will call coordinators the day of their scheduled delivery only at the start of each time slot. Your phone call will depend on the time slot chosen by the school or daycare.

    We suggest you can nominate someone as the “Farm to School Fundraiser Champion” (perhaps this is YOU!). This person can inform all of the school and daycare group leaders, parent council, and teachers about the fundraiser and pass along all information to the groups in your school that are interested.
    Once everyone is aware of the fundraiser, you can choose a fundraising period that works for all interested groups to ensure no one misses out!
    **Remember there is only 1 delivery date offered per school or daycare centre. Therefore, if several groups or classes are fundraising, they will all have to coordinate one fundraising period for everyone. Vegetable orders for all of the groups will be delivered at one time on the selected delivery date.**
