Local and organic food and beverage was featured in the Winter Food Bag Pop-up for Acadia students held on March 6th from 12:30pm-2:30pm in the Student Union Building.

Thirty-six free food bags were distributed to Acadia students with the help of volunteers from the ASU Food Cupboard, ESST Society, Organic Nova Scotia, and the Wolfville Farmer's Market.

Each food bag included certified organic parsnips and potatoes from TapRoot Farms, beets, leeks, and carrots from Medford Farms, eggs from Rocky Top Farm, Boates apple cider, and Hacha Java Coffee from Just Us.

A pop-up was also held in the fall as part of UNSDG month at Acadia. Acadia's 2023/2024 SDG goal is Zero Hunger. This and other initiatives on campus help Acadia address student food insecurity. 

The student food assistance program is a partnership initiative with Organic Nova Scotia. Acadia was designated the first Organic Campus in Canada by the Canada Organic Trade Association in 2022 and this work expands the impact of the program on campus and in the community by supporting students and local organic producers. 

Another Pop-Up is planned for Fall 2024. Contact for more information about the programs.
