About the Service
Squamish Fresh was born from one woman voicing her frustration over the cost and quality of produce in Squamish. In an online post to Squamish Moms in June 2019 Kelly Ann Woods asked how many women would be interested in starting a collective to bulk-buy fruits and vegetables to keep the cost down. The response was overwhelming. Over 1000 men and women have joined the Facebook group so far. A core team of amazing women, with diverse skill-sets, came together and have kept the co-op running.
It was determined early in the piece that the organization needed to formalize and that co-op values and principles aligned well with those of Squamish Fresh.
Each week we order a truck load of fresh produce and divide it up amongst our members. We’re using the co-ops purchasing power to give our members great value, staple produce.
The contents of the Fresh Box varies from week to week. We post a Facebook notification on Friday or Saturday letting you know what you can expect in the box for the coming Tuesday. Please bear in mind that the order is subject to availability and items may change by the time produce is delivered to Squamish on Tuesday.
The Co-op Membership share is $50.00. This is a one-time investment. Membership share is refundable 12 months from the date of investment if you now longer wish to be part of the co-op.
