    …fresh produce…affordable prices…food education

    Community Food Smart is a bulk food buying club for individuals and families keen on purchasing quality fruits and vegetables at affordable prices, sourced from local farmers when possible.

    Community Food Smart operates through a network of community partners who collect orders, provide volunteers, and distribute food bags to their members each month.

    Together, these partners donate their time and effort to make each area’s food buying club a success.

    Members can place an order for one or two fresh produce bags a month. The price of a food bag is $15.

    Volunteers help sort and pack bags for same day delivery.

    Bag inserts provide useful information and recipes.

    Go to the website to learn more.

    ***********************************

    Our area’s first Community Food Smart bags will be available in September, orders need to be in by September 10 to Mary Ellen Fitch – mefitch@gmail.com /  1-506-466-8478

    To join:

    1.  Complete an application for membership and give to Mary Ellen.
    2.  Pay an annual membership fee of $10 or what you can afford to pay. You will receive a reusable food bag.

    Then, each month, you decide by a specific date whether you want to order that month, if so take your money ($15) and food bag to the distributor (Mary Ellen or another specified person) before the 2nd Friday of the month. On the delivery day, 3rd Tuesday of the month, go to the pick up point (TBD) and get your produce.
