Gabrielle Santerre, Food Box Customer Service
Have any questions about out program? Want to make a special request for your box? Contact Gabby for these and any other questions or needs you have.
The VSA is Western’s Community Supported Agriculture program, bringing students, staff, and faculty in contact with Whatcom/Skagit County produce and producers. By signing up, you will receive a box of local, fresh, organic fruits and veggies. Boxes will be dropped off near the west entrance of Haggard Hall. The VSA program is a program of the Office of Sustainability and was initiated through a Whatcom Community Foundation grant to help our community support sustainable local agriculture and make nutritious food available to members of the Western community. Students and employees can see all of the box options and add-on items and learn more about the CSA and farm here.
Growing Washington partners with many local Whatcom and Skagit County farms, including Growing Veterans. By participating in the VSA program your investment supports over a dozen small farms!
“Growing Washington is offering WWU Students and Employees a special $25 discount on any subscription. Simply enter the discount code “WWU” when ordering your CSA membership”
