Too busy to go grocery shopping for healthy food? Do you find fresh produce to be too expensive? UB is bringing healthy, affordable options right onto campus.
UB's Veggie Van is your campus destination for fresh, locally grown produce and a hub of nutrition security innovation. We are on a mission to transform the way our campus community thinks about food, making nutritious options accessible to all.
UB students, staff, and faculty can buy shares from the Becker Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and receive boxes of locally-sourced produce delivered directly to campus. It’s an easy, convenient way to access fresh fruits and vegetables without driving to the store. Share contents vary throughout the season. Examples are greens, berries, corn, potatoes, squash, garlic, onions, tomatoes, apples, peaches and more; amount of produce increases from mid-June through fall.
