Competition winners from Boston Town Team’s first community event came together to collect their prizes with Jenny Elwick, Boston Area Chamber’s Network Development Officer.
Judi Kay won the organic vegetable boxes, which were kindly donated by Select Lincolnshire for Food member Strawberry Fields organic farmers, near Stickney.
Judi scooped the prize by successfully milking the most from a mechanical cow at Boston Town’s Team’s Food for Thought event in February.
Upon receiving the prize, Judi kindly donated it onto to the Salvation Army. The donation was a sign of thanks, in return for the Salvation Army’s recent support of new Christmas toys offered to the charity that Judi works for.
Judi, who is the Home Start Boston Manager, has her own allotment and fully appreciates the benefit of good local produce, so much so that she wanted to share her prize and give something back to the local community, who in some cases are unemployed, homeless and in need through the Thursday lunch that’s offered by the Salvation Army.
Trinette Homes (pictured) cooks the three course meal for up to 60 people every week, as well as turning her hand to cooks for many other special occasions. Those wishing to go along for lunch must contact the Salvation Army on 01205 359232 first.
Trinette Homes said: “The food boxes are very much appreciated and will go a long way”’.
Judi was spurred on to win the competition following her sister’s attempt at milking the mechanical cow.
Other winners included Martyn Moses, who also collected his Nutri Blender prize from Boston Area Chamber Network Development Officer Jenny Elwick. Martyn entered a free prize draw and will be putting the blender to good use as he is planning to make his own healthy soups.
The Food for Thought event was the first to be arranged by Boston Town Town, and following its success there are hope to arrange more in the future.
Those wishing to go along for lunch must contact the Salvation Army on 01205 359232 first.
