Student Association Food Market provides access to fresh produce at affordable prices
George Brown students at Casa Loma campus can now buy affordable fruits and vegetables right on campus.
Every Friday the Student Association, which funds The Dialog, brings cheap, fresh and nutritious produce from FoodShare, a non-profit agency, to help students eat healthier and spend less.
“It is really expensive to be a student in Toronto, so we want to make the healthiest options available to our students right on campus for the cheapest price possible,” said Claire Whitehead, a food bank lead. “I hope students see us and understand that this is for them, that we are not trying to raise money for something outside school.”
The Good Food Market at Casa Loma campus is open on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the food court of the Student Centre on the first floor of the E building. It is also open at Waterfront campus on Wednesdays and at St. James campus on Thursdays starting at 10 a.m.
