About Us

Mandate: Make healthy and affordable food more accessible at Brock

  • Save Students Money
  • Easier and Healthier Food
  • Student Food Initiatives
  • Helping Students Fundraise
  • Food Everywhere

 

The Foods We Focus On

  • Quick and convenient
  • Healthy, whole foods.
  • In-season, local, environmentally friendly
  • Ethically sourced
  • Food groups and types of food not as available at other at Brock
  • Universally edible (i.e we shy away from gluten because many people are allergic)
  • Low-risk (non-hazardous as defined by health and safety guidelines)
  • Low-cost and scalable (i.e. no $50/lb pine nuts in the pesto, when we can use sunflower seeds instead)

 

Good Food is at the Heart of Fed Up

The Affordable Food Project was founded to help students eat well. We can’t emphasize how important food is. Food maintains life. It supports growth. Food can make a hard day easier, it can de-stress you and give you the energy you need. Good food can make you smile.

 

History

Fed Up The Affordable Food Project grew out of a wave of student outrage at food cost increases back in 2011 and has since incorporated as a student run not-for-profit to bring a host of new food services to Brock students.
