Be Fresh Local Market, a sustainability-focused market and café, is addressing food insecurity in Vancouver neighborhoods head on by launching their Pay-It…
Summer’s coming to a close and you know what that means… time to think about heading back to school. Don’t worry though – it’s not all bad! This year we’re kicking off the back-to-school season with a bin drive. Time to clean out the drawers and support some local kids, too.
What’s a bin drive?
A few times per year, SPUD partners up with an organization in each of their four locations. As they drop off and pick up deliveries, they collect items from customers in SPUD bins that this organization might need. At the Be Fresh stores, we’ll be participating too! Simply place items in the bin in-store for SPUD to pick up. This August, we’ll be collecting new school supplies.
What you need to know:
From August 20th – 31st, place NEW school supplies in the SPUD bin at your nearest Be Fresh location.
See below for the specific list of supplies. For information on the organization and to find out where these donations will go, click the organization link below.
