A new nine-week pilot project, the Food Hub Market, recently launched in the CIRS building.
On February 16, 2022, the project began, providing low cost groceries to anyone on the UBC Vancouver campus. The project is a partnership between UBC Food Services, UBC Wellbeing and the UBC Sustainability Hub.
During the Food Hub market’s March 2 open house, UBC student Matthew Chen expressed optimism with the program's focus on affordability.
“I think a lot of students are struggling financially,” Chen said. “Groceries are a big factor.”
