Sign up open for Viking Supported Agriculture produce boxes from local farms

The Sustainability Engagement Institute facilitates the Viking Supported Agriculture (VSA) program to connect the campus community to local food producers who deliver boxes of their fresh items directly to our office in High Street Hall or to neighborhood locations in Bellingham. You can learn more about the benefits of connecting to farmers and food producers in this way at Sustainable Connections CSA website Sustainable Connections.

Please visit our website for more information on each farm, and links to sign up at the individual farm websites: Sustainability Engagement Institute - Viking Supported Agriculture. For those of you who desire multiple shares, please follow the sign-up instructions for each provider. Please identify yourself as a VSA participant if not using your wwu.edu email address to sign-up.  It helps our data! 

Because food security continues to be challenging for our community members, we have set up a dedicated fund to receive donations to help pay for weekly fresh produce for students in need.  To date, over $1,200.00 has been donated by the campus community; the equivalent of 98 weeks of fresh produce for individuals experiencing food insecurity. You can donate here: VSA Foundation Account

If you have WWU-specific questions, please reach out to linda.sterling@wwu.edu.

Thank you for your interest in healthy, sustainable food and for supporting our local producers!
