Sharing Great Food

Who says there is no free lunch?

Sharing Great Food is a joint program of the Acadia Sustainability Office, the Acadia Students' Union and Slow Food Acadia that provides free healthy and sustainable lunches to the Acadia community. The program aims to improve student food security and foster a communal food experience on campus.

Meals prepared by volunteers are held each month in the Student Union Building. Each meal is made possible by support from local farms that donates produce for the program. Additional funding is provided by The Acadia Students' Union through the Wellness Fund. The program was first started in 2012 by Environment and Sustainability Studies students Rachel Eisener and Joe Elliot. Students are encouraged to attend, but all members of the Acadia Community are welcome to share great food. Meals are free, but donations are happily accepted.
