LOCAL SUPLIERS: When ever available, we purchase our vegetables and fruits from the local school garden, financially sustaining various children's programs,such as a mid day meal. From organically grown rocket, mixed and corn salad leaves to fruits such as mangoes, pineapple and bananas are purchased on the day of preparation, making a steady supply of fresh veggies and fruits to your plates. While ensuring that some of the vegetables are grown organically, at times few varieties needing a balance supply of nutrients may be subjected to non organic fertilizer although it is very minimal.
