About the U of G Food Market

  • Food insecurity, or the inadequate and insecure access to food, is a significant issue for many post-secondary students across Canada, associated with various negative impacts on physical and mental health, as well as academic performance (Hattangadi et al., 2021; Maroto, 2015). Sliding scale markets are one intervention developed to address food insecurity, currently implemented at the University of Guelph with promising results. 
  • The U of G Food Market sells fresh fruits, vegetables, and other goods on a sliding scale, which allows customers to choose the amount they want to pay within a set range, with no questions asked. We are committed to making healthy food accessible to anyone and everyone.  
  • The market is not just a place to buy fresh food. We are a community where you can meet, chat, and swap food ideas while building new connections. This non-profit initiative has become a valuable program at the University of Guelph.  
  • The market started in 2022 and thrives due to the remarkable collaboration fostered among the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute, the University of Guelph Sustainability Office, and the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph.
