Square Roots is a social enterprise that tackles food insecurity and food waste in Nova Scotian communities through our Bundle Service. We purchase seconds produce in bulk from local farmers and sorted into 10lbs bundles which typically include root vegetables, fruits, and with our partnership with Hellmann’s, a full value coupon for any Hellmann’s product!
We currently have a dozen communities across Nova Scotia where you can buy a bundle on the last weekend of every month from our local Community Managers. We post the exact dates and times on our Facebook and Instagram the third week of every month along with what will be in the bundle that month!
How Does It Work?
In order to ensure that every household has access to fresh affordable bundles, Square Roots came up with a unique Social Pricing Model.
For 10lb bundles, you pay $10 if you can afford it, or $5 if you can’t.
An assortment of produce equalling 10lbs of produce providing you and your family with fresh, healthy produce at a reasonable price.
An assortment of produce equalling 10lbs of produce. The extra money goes to helping us expand into more communities.
Three Month Membership
Members purchase a bundle for themselves and a family in need. For $60, you prepay for the next three months.
