The 40-pound bags towered above the silver-haired food activist, stacked to the ceiling in the walk-in fridge of the Stop Community Food Centre. At the time, none of the food basket recipients would take the beets, donated by an organic farm near Creemore.
“Beautiful beets,” remembers Saul. “But hard to move.”
