Food Connect - Robert Pekin


As we all clean up after the floods, we're also now hearing about the difficult times ahead - rising costs, rising expenditure, inflationary pressure, higher rates, etc. One of the major shortages ahead will be food. Not only have the farms been wiped out, but it's going to take them years to re-establish crops and plantations. We've all heard about the problems at the Rocklea markets, but we haven't heard about how food supplier, FoodConnect has been faring. Robert Pekin is the Executive Director of the Foodconnect Foundation

Editorial Notes: EB reader Stuart McCarthy says: The triumph of community supported agriculture during Brisbane's recent floods.
