Fresh fruit and vegetables are now being delivered regularly to residents at Punmu and Parnngurr, thanks to a joint initiative between Newcrest Mining and community developers from those regions.

The project, which has been in operation for nearly two years now, ensures people from remote areas have regular access to WA-grown fruit and vegetables. The produce is sold at an affordable price in community shops once it is delivered.

While the initiative was created to assist community members become healthier, it has also helped to generate trust between local community groups and business organisations.
