CARTERS COMMUNITY FOOD DELIVERIES

 

Fruit and Veg and a little more…

  • Due to supermarkets beginning to return to normal in terms of stock levels we are no longer continuing with our fresh box deliveries. You can however contact Glenn who was helping us to deliver on 07983 582 906 he will be able to assist you as he continues to supply some fresh boxes. A big thank you to all of you who ordered with us.

As a way of helping to support the local community we are launching a Carters Community Food Delivery service for the people in our local area who are vulnerable and those who cannot secure online delivery food shopping or those who just want some fresh produce, we will deliver to everyone.

We had just freshly decorated our red publicity van in preparation for our 2020 tour which, due to COVID-19, cannot go ahead just yet and it seemed a shame to see it laying dormant in the yard. Therefore we have decided that it should be put to work and used to deliver boxes of fresh groceries to those who need them.

We have two options of fresh boxes available to choose from: a Regular Box which costs £30 and a Family Box which costs £40. Each of which contain a selection of fruit, vegetables and other essentials, such as milk and bread. The produce will be collected from the market the morning after you place your order and delivered to your doorstep that day.

  • Milk (2 litres, full fat or semi-skimmed)
  • Bread (brown or white)
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots

A Regular or Family Box with Eggs

We also have the option of Regular and Family Boxes with local free-range eggs. If you chose one of these fresh boxes it will come with one tray of 30 hen’s eggs from a farm in White Waltham. We will collect them from the farm and bring them to your doorstep with your groceries on your chosen delivery day. 

Stock is collected daily and delivered straight to your door so products may vary based on the stock that our suppliers have available. We regret that items cannot be substituted.

How to place an order

Visit our shop page or click one of the buttons above to choose the product you wish to purchase, then select a delivery day of your choice. Buy your fresh box before 2pm to get it delivered the following day.

All fresh boxes must be ordered through our website so we can ensure that the stock is managed appropriately. To make the service contact-free, payments must be made online at the point of purchase and we will not be excepting cash on collection.

We are operating this fresh box delivery service within a 7 mile radius of our winter headquarters in White Waltham, Maidenhead (SL6 3JF).

The map below shows area we cover.

What to expect when you have placed your order.

Your fresh box will arrive on the day you have scheduled your delivery, having been freshly picked from the market that morning.

We will deliver between 8am and 5pm so please ensure stay in on your selected delivery day.

To keep contact to a minimum, we will not be able to enter your home. When your delivery arrives, the driver will carefully place your shopping at your door before knocking and stepping back. All deliveries will be boxed in a way that makes them easy for you to take inside. Please note they may be heavy so we encourage you to use caution when moving them into your homes.

We are so pleased to be able to help our local community and offer this service in these unprecedented times. Take care everyone. Remember stay home, stay safe. We look forward to your orders and offering our service to you.
