Western Sydney University donates 58 tonnes of vegetables to Foodbank

Western Sydney University's Hawkesbury campus and its research partners are donating tonnes of fresh, healthy produce to Foodbank NSW and ACT to support families in need during bushfires, COVID-19 and beyond.

The donations are being made through the world-class education and research facility for Australia's protected cropping specialists, the National Vegetable Protected Cropping Centre's Glasshouse, based at Hawkesbury.

Since its launch in 2017, the centre has produced more than 58 tonnes of fresh produce, such as eggplants, cucumbers and chilies from production and research trials.
