Fundraising with Frozen Berries

Fundraising with Frozen Wild Blueberries, Cranberries & Raspberries!

 

Wild-Blueberries

 A healthy fundraiser!

Fern’s Frozen Fruit — a business founded by Jim’s mother, Fern, back in the 1980’s and now operated by Jim — sells individually quick frozen (IQF) Wild Nova Scotia Blueberries (per 2 kg bag), Nova Scotia Cranberries (per 2 kg bag) and Chilean Raspberries (per 2.5 kg bag) to non-profit groups for fundraising purposes.

We have 2 large Berry Blitzes each season when our product gets shipped to us in Ottawa, the first is in late October and the second in February.  The Blitzes are held on a Friday evening and a Saturday.  At the Blitz, our fundraising groups are allotted a mutually convenient time slot in which to come pick up their group’s berries.  They in turn distribute their berry orders to their clients.

Once we have our berry prices for the season (usually in mid-September ) we are able to let our groups know the pricing for each fruit. The groups then may start selling to their families, friends and communities up until 2 weeks before the Blitz date.  As fruit is a commodity, it is normal for the price to vary from year to year depending on the crop, although we try our best to keep our product pricing stable from season to season.

Any group wishing to fundraise with us, please contact Jim at jim@walkerworks.ca or call us at 613-831-2879 for more information and to book your time slot in the next Blitz.
