The Food Bank Farm and Algoma University Cooperation

The Food Bank Farm and Algoma University Cooperation was formalized with the signing of two Memorandums of Understanding in 2018. The first focuses on food sharing, whereby excess food from the People’s Garden during the summer flows to the Food Bank Farm for processing and distribution. In return, during the school year, the Food Bank Farm may make some of their produce available to the University. Additionally, students will have an opportunity to work as volunteers on the Farm and the Farm is also able to share technical growing skills with the students and University. The second agreement relates to Demonstration Projects and Funding Collaboration between Algoma University and its Department of Geography & Geology and the Food Bank Farm. Cooperation in the spirit of this agreement has already begun by the planting of a culinary herb garden at the Food Bank Farm.
