Who is my Community Angel?
Community Angels are wonderful, long-standing veg-box members, who have volunteered to find the people who really need us in their community. If you would like to join us, you need to do so through your local Community Angel. They will take your details, including a description of the particular difficult situation you are facing. As and when new capacity is generated, we’ll coordinate with the Community Angels to find the people who need us most in their area.
Here is a list of Community Angels and the area they are caring for:
We are still looking for Community Angels for the following areas:
Cherry Hinton, Sawston/surrounding villages, Cherry Hinton, St. Ives, St. Neots, Royston, Barnwell, Kings Hedges, Fulbourn, Linton, Haverhill
Can you lend us your wings?
About us:what makes us different?
We're the local vegetable people
We're the only veg box delivery service who collects produce from lots of organic farms in the local area. We pack our veg boxes in Haslingfield just outside of Cambridge, and deliver them to homes in Cambridge and the villages and surrounding towns.
We're the people who put you in control
We believe our members should be able to decide how much control they want over what goes in their veg box. Our unique Choice veg boxes allow you to select the contents of your veg box each week. No one else offers this completely bespoke service.
If you'd prefer that we put together a great selection for you then we do that too. With our Favourites boxes we put together a lovely selection based around your likes and dislikes. If you're happy to leave all the selection up to us then our Original Vegetable box is great value and as local as we can make it.
Let us tell you a little more about ourselves
We're organic people
We're organically certified, which means we have annual inspections to prove that all our fresh produce is organic. We sell a big range of organic groceries as well, plus a few locally made groceries which aren't certified as organic but are clearly labeled as such.
We're green people
Organic production is good for the environment – both for the wildlife in and around the fields in which the food is grown, and for the planet as a whole.
By prioritising local produce, we keep food miles to a minimum.
Our van fleet is going electric: the majority of our veg box delivery vans are now electric.
We save on packaging: we pack our veg in the empty boxes which some of our veg comes in – and we hope to re-use them as many times as we can, so please return them each week!
We're Living Wage people
We're Living Wage accredited employers. We're committed to paying our staff at least the Living Wage. In fact, we were the first food business to achieve accreditation in East Anglia, making us the Living Wage Foundation's Living Wage Champion in 2015.
We're helpful people
If you have any questions, or experience any problems with ordering, please do get in touch. You can ring us on 01223 873300. Your call will almost certainly be answered by one of the management team who'll be very keen to talk! If you prefer to email then you can use our contact page. We hope to answer your query as soon as we see it.
We're people who love food
We really do like our veg: taste and quality matter to us. Have a look at our Facebook and Instagram pages to see the recipe ideas we've been cooking up. Find us @camorganic
Every two months, we publish our Courgette magazine, which is delivered free to our all our veg-box members. If you'd like to to see the current issue, you can see it online here:
