Harvest Box

Order a Harvest Box  FAQ

Our Harvest Box program is an easy, affordable, and fun way to eat sustainable food that is grown close to home. Our two boxes - the Value Box and the Local Box - offer fresh produce that is good for the environment, good for you, and good for your community. Each box comes with an abundant variety of fruits and vegetables, purchased from the farmers themselves as well as distributors.

Harvest Boxes are...

  1. Affordable - save money by buying directly from the farmers and distributors. Harvest Boxes provide 2 - 3 times the produce for the same price in comparison to the average supermarket
  2. Healthy  - increase the number and variety of whole fresh fruits and veggies in your diet
  3. Supports your community  - by buying produce as locally as possible, your purchase helps support our farmers and economy
  4. Sustainable  - reduce food miles and greenhouse gas emissions by eating produce grown close to home, limiting trips to the grocery store, and reducing plastic packaging
  5. Convenient  - Harvest Boxes get delivered to your chosen Simon Fraser University campus, Harbour Centre or Burnaby, twice a month

What people are saying about it

“I just picked up my Local Harvest Box from you moments ago, and as a first timer, I must say how impressed I am. Everything is of exceptional quality (the berries are disappearing quickly!), there is lots of produce, and a fabulous variety of ten different items! Already looking forward to the next one.”
