Embark is a student-led non-profit society based out of Simon Fraser University with over 35,000 undergraduate and graduate student members. We empower students to create sustainable change through grants, training, and engagement.

We work to represent the voice of students at the university. Our commitment over the years has allowed us to acquire a seat on SFU's Senior Sustainability Council, the Sustainable Mobility Advisory Committee, and has enabled us to work with various SFU departments and groups to ensure student sustainability issues are addressed. 

If you'd like to volunteer and join the Embark team, visit our Get Involved page.

If you are not an SFU student but would like to support our work, consider becoming an Associate Member. As an Associate Member, you will be a part of our growing network of sustainability leaders. Join our events, campaigns, and get access to funding and professional development opportunities. Become a member today.

    Food Rescue distribution


    Food Rescue is a food recovery program. We collect healthy fruits and vegetables that are deemed as surplus and un-salable according to food industry standards and redistribute it to the university community. Food is collected from Nesters Market and redistributed at SFU Burnaby on a bi-weekly basis. 

    How it works

    Drop by our Food Rescue distribution location at the posted date and time, and take home some produce! We will be accepting donations of any amount and will be selling our tote bags on site for $4 each, in case you don't have a bag.
