Frigo Vert is a collectively-run, non-profit, anti-capitalist health food store near Concordia that sells relatively inexpensive and frequently local and organic food. Find bulk and vegan products that are hard to come by elsewhere. A neccessary membership costs $20, but results in slightly cheaper prices. (2130 Mackay; Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
The People’s Potato
Similar to the Midnight Kitchen, but located at Concordia University. (7th floor of 1455 de Maisonneuve O.; 12:30 to 2 p.m. on weekdays)
The Midnight Kitchen Collective serves by-donation vegan lunches every weekday at 12:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Shatner building. Bring Tupperware or use the Plate Club, also located in Shatner, to borrow a dish.
Gorilla Composting, a student composting group, collects your fruit and veggie scraps, coffee grinds, and more in a bin in the Shatner basement. A bin and a membership can be purchased for $5, but non-members are still welcome to drop off their organics – just don’t leave plastic bags behind.
The almost-student-run café in the Adams building has $2 vegan zaatars, and they also serve Santropol fair-trade coffee for 60 cents if you bring your own mug.
