What is WECAN?

The WECAN Food Basket Society is a non-profit organization that purchases bulk meat and produce, which individuals can purchase and pick up from depots across the Edmonton area. 

Members pay a small fee to participate, then pay for the number of orders they'd like each month. Items available vary from month to month.


All members of the UofA campus community are welcome to access this program through the Campus Food Bank!

What are the costs?

Yearly Membership Fee $5.00

Meat Order (3 types of meat) $15.00

Produce Order (3 types of fruit and 3 types of vegetables) $10.00

One Full Order (1 Meat and 1 Produce) $25.00

Available in any number of each kind of order.

When are payments due?

Your payment is due to the Campus Food Bank by the first Friday of the month for your order to be processed. We only accept cash payments for WECAN orders, however there are ATMs for most major banks just down the hall from our office in SUB. 

When do I receive my order?

Orders can be picked up from the Campus Food Bank office (SUB 1-81) on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 12-6pm. Any orders that are not picked up that day will be given away to CFB clients, so it is very important to plan ahead to pick up your items before 6pm.

What dietary restrictions can be accomodated?

The only dietary accomodation that the WECAN baskets can accomodate is no pork in the meat orders. Order contents vary based on what produce and meat are available. 


If you are interested in a Halal meat hamper, there is currently one depot in the city that has Halal hampers available, Belvedere Depot.  Access their contact details at http://wecanfood.com/?page_id=24

There may be others in the future, so check back on the WECAN website for updates.
