Herbie, was set up by MERCi to provide affordable, fresh fruit and vegetables to residents living in areas of East Manchester with poor access to fresh foods.
Herbie is a mobile greengrocer and customers can walk on board and choose from a good range of affordable fresh produce. We also supply boxes of fruit to schools and projects, and work closely with sheltered housing, churches, health clinics and resident groups to ensure that we reach as many people in our local community as possible. We can also deliver beautiful gift baskets of fruit - a healthy alternative to chocolates!
As with all of MERCi's projects, it is envisaged that Herbie will act as an inspirational model for other communities, in similar areas, with the same challenges.
Herbie now delivers fresh fruit and veg boxes to homes and offices visit our new website for information.
