Food Education Days

Join SFU students, campus groups, and local community organizations to envision a new future for our food system at the 3rd annual Food Education Days (FED)! At FED, we will seek to engage SFU students to learn more about current issues of food access and security, food of the future, local food production, personal health, and other food related topics through a series of three events.

Harvest Box Graphic

Our Harvest Box program has returned for the Spring!

Our beloved campus food program is back for 2016! The 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. The next order deadline is March 23, and boxes will be distributed on March 31.

Order your own Harvest Box!
