Farm to School Alberta has partnered with Food Banks Alberta to provide participants an opportunity to donate bundles of vegetables to The Calgary Food Bank.  The School will still receive a 50% of the purchase price regardless if the vegetables are purchased to keep or for donation!  Any vegetable bundles purchased for donation will be delivered for free by Peak of the Market directly to The Calgary Food Bank.

The deadline to order is September 19th, 2022, with orders ready for pick up on October 1st, 2022.  All orders are to be picked up at 167 Scenic Park Crescent between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

SAVE THE DATE! BOTTLE DRIVE:  We are running a bottle drive simultaneously with pick up of the Farm to School orders on October 1st!  Please bring your empty bottles with you for donation when you pick up your Farm to School orders. Even if you are not participating in the Farm to School fundraiser, please consider bringing your empties for donation to the school. This bottle drive is being offered in partnership with Skip the Depot.
