I cannot thank you enough for your support and enthusiasm this summer! I am saddened to announce that the Pixie lunch box delivery service has been cancelled for the rest of the summer as I have suffered a broken wing and other calamities that will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to heal.
What started as a simple idea to prepare and deliver my favourite recipes by bicycle has flourished into a larger vision to establish a county-wide mobile food program. The intention is that it will still be a social enterprise that provides culinary and entrepreneurial training for youth while reaching out to rural neighbourhoods in need of access to fresh food. Developing partnerships with farmers and food entrepreneurs/producers will also promote local food across Northumberland County.
I have had the most meaningful experience piloting the Pedalling Pixies this summer. Customers, business owners, friends and community leaders have been generous with their ideas and conversations. While the season has been cut short I am going to use this time for business plan writing, networking, fundraising and of course continuing to share some delicious recipes! Get ready for next summer — a full fleet of pixies abound!
May the rest of your summer be filled with bike rides and delicious food!
Nic Bea, Owner & Chief Pixie
