square-roots-brown

Through the delivery of healthy and affordable bundles of fruits and vegetables, Square Roots is a social enterprise aimed at tackling food insecurity, food deserts, and food waste in Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia has the highest food insecurity and food waste of any province in Canada; why should people go hungry when good food is going to waste?

Square Roots sources imperfect produce from local farmers, and works with low income communities to increase access to affordable fruits and vegetables. We receive orders, sort the produce into bundles, and distribute them to customers at convenient drop-off points across the city. Square Roots was launched in Uniacke Square with the help of two youth from the community. Since launching, Square Roots has already distributed over 10,000 lbs of food to hundreds of families, while bringing in nearly $11,000 in revenue that’s reinvested to grow the business.
