The Veg Patch - Every Friday 11am - 2pm

29 January 2019 @TeesUniNews


The Veg Patch is a partnership project between Teesside University, Middlesbrough Environment City and the Coop. Our aim is to provide sustainable, affordable and accessible fruit and veg for all students and staff.

Surplus produce will be provided each week by local Coop stores and other local supermarkets and growers. The produce will be provided on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis so if you feel you would like to contribute, all money goes back into running the project. There will also be advice provided on recipes and cooking what you get each week, from the volunteers and staff running the Veg Patch stall.

You can visit the stall every Friday 11am-2pm Middlesbrough Tower foyer space in the Nest café near the lifts. We will then be there every Friday, same time and venue, until Friday May 10th.

We are always looking for volunteers to get involved, so if you are interested please email Hazel on

Come along and see us. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Veg Patch team.
