Le Frigo Vert is a collectively run, not-for-profit health food store on Mackay Street. With a mandate to address student poverty and food security, it offers natural and organic food, home and body products on the cheap. Along with bulk food, fresh produce, and other groceries, Le Frigo Vert sells 50¢ coffee, 60¢ samosas, and other affordable lunch items and snacks. Almost everything in the store is vegan, and there are always some gluten-free food options available. All are welcome to use the Frigo’s lounge space and to heat up their food in the store’s kitchen. Every Concordia student is automatically a member of the store through a student fee levy, getting them a 20% discount on everything in the store!

The City Farm School project is founded with the same principles and goals of the Concordia Greenhouse, to facilitate education through an experience-based model. The primary goal of this project is to respond to a growing interest in issues around food sovereignty and the practice of urban agriculture as well as to provide an opportunity for students and community to collaborate. They have a Weekly Market Stand where they sell fresh produce during four months a year! The Farm is located at Loyola Campus in NDG behind the student residence.
