The WECAN program offers monthly fruit and vegetable or meat baskets at a low cost.
November orders will be open from November 19th until December 3rd at 5pm.
WECAN Pick Up Day will be Thursday, December 16th between 12-6pm from the Campus Food Bank, located in the Student's Union Building.
We are only accepting online orders and payments at this time.
If you require a different pick up location closer to your home, there are many WECAN depots across Edmonton and area! You can order directly from https://wecanfood.com/ if you need this option.
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!
