A local food share program at the University of Rochester

Connecting Families & Individuals to Local, Sustainable, Farm Fresh Food
The Good Food Collective is a local food share program connecting UR employees with fresh, local, sustainable food from their network of small farms. You can sign up for single orders or commit to a longer period of time to receive this good food at a convenient location, the Flaum Atrium in the Medical Center. Free 30 minute parking is available in the MRB parking lot.

Winter Shares Available Now!
The winter season provides members with two weeks of local, sustainable food at each of our biweekly distributions. The season is already underway, but you can purchase one week at a time! Standard produce share members will receive a mix of fresh greens, apples & pears, flash frozen summer crops like blueberries, corn, peppers, broccoli and green beans, as well as a wide variety of roots to choose from. Other shares include grass fed beef, pasture raised pork & poultry, artisanal cheese, fresh roasted coffee, organic Florida citrus and more!

The URMC winter distributions will be held in Flaum Atrium from 4-6 PM on Thursday, February 16th, March 2nd and March 16th. This distribution will also include an open market table where you can purchase shares on the spot, as well as a range of pantry and additional items from the Good Food Collective's network of farmers and producers.

Spring Shares Coming Soon!
The spring season will provide members with four weekly distributions in both May and June. Products will be available for preorder soon, and members will be able to purchase the whole season or one week at a time.
