we’ve been plotting away all winter for an epic 2015 season! we wanted to share our vision with you:
the pedalling pixies is a bike delivery program serving northumberland county, ontario. we provide learning and employment opportunities for youth through culinary training and food entrepreneurship.
the pedalling pixies is a social venture in support of the local food for local good foundation, which means that proceeds from our pixie projects are reinvested back into local community programs.
by getting youth on bicycles, pedalling around their neighbourhoods, we aim to achieve the following goals:
- facilitate summer employment opportunities for youth
- connect people with local food through a weekly lunch service, “pixie lunchboxes”
- coordinate a partnership program with local secondary schools where their culinary arts students curate and prepare weekly lunch menus to take to market
- provide a courier service to local restaurants, farmers markets and home-based entrepreneurs to deliver their goods to customers
- promote local food for local good’s efforts in building a sustainable pathway to food security in our community
With a bowl of 12 grain oats mixed with flax seed and chia seed. Topped with shredded coconut, hemp and blueberries. And oh, don’t forget to drizzle some agave nectar on top!
NOTICE: Dear customers,
Unfortunately I had a bit of a tumble over the weekend (non-bike related) that clipped one of my wings, which will make it difficult to cook and cycle. As a result I have to cancel the lunch delivery program for this week. Please accept my apologies and thank you for understanding
Nic, Chief Pixie
us pixies, we’re simple folk really. we want to pedal around on our bicycles and deliver good food to good people. we had the chance to do that today with the launch of our homemade lunchbox delivery service. we cannot express our gratitude enough. we’ve received some rad feedback — bring on next week! spread the word and thanks for your support. we’re excited about this little venture. we hope you are too.
until next time … mad love from the pixies xo.
mad thanks to you.
