What is the Community Food Smart Program?

Community Food Smart is a bulk food buying club aimed at improving the health and well-being of individuals and families in our local communities. Every month members have the opportunity to purchase a bag of produce for only $15. There is also an optional annual membership fee of $10 which helps to sustain the program.

What comes in a bag of produce?

Bags will typically include six staple items, apples, bananas, oranges, potatoes, onions and carrots, as well as a variety of seasonal options. Each month will feature different vegetables and fruit depending on what is available and affordable. An effort is made to get as much local food into the bags as well. 

Forms and money can be submitted to the Welcome Centre, located in the Student Union Building. Bags will be available for pick-up in the Welcome Centre one week later. The dates below outline when orders are due and when the bags can be picked up.
