PLOT Care Baskets
Helping Neighbours with Immediate Food Needs
Weeks 13 -16
Week 13 of the Care Baskets — This week we provided 42 care baskets to families. We would like to honour our amazing volunteer Bobby Monga for his help with picking up and packing the care baskets! And for always bringing lightness, humour and care to the PLOT.
‘Thank you so much for the lovely vegetables it’s been such a great blessing.’
Week 14 of the Care Baskets — This week we delivered to 42 families across Surrey. We are excited to partner with Offbeat Produce to source local and organic zucchini and cucumbers. Offbeat Produce is a food rescue organization that sources good, fresh, off-grade produce from local farms.
Prof. Jen Marchbank from SFU’s Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies visited the PLOT on her birthday. We presented her with this beautiful flower bouquet!
And as always a heartfelt thank you to our new and old volunteers!
Week 15 of the Care Baskets — This week we provided fresh produce to 42 families!

‘Hello Dear Folks of the Newton Care Basket Project!
Thank you so much to each & everyone who has been delivering fresh veg & fruit to my house for months!I have never ever eaten this much fresh produce & I am sure you all are adding some years to my life! Your kindnesses in these strange Covid-19 times is very much appreciated!
I make big fresh soups & share with my family & a senior neighbor or 2! The beans this week are so nice! Plums and corn on the cob! All my costs have gone up since beginning of year, and prospects to make money this year all dissolved! I appreciate your love veg baskets each and every time they show up at my door!
