What is the vegetable bag scheme?
VegBag a fortnightly scheme that brings fresh, organic and locally sourced vegetables to you on campus.
You can choose between large bags (£6.00) which typically contain five different seasonable items of fruit and veg, and a small bag (£3.00) which contains fewer of the same items.
To complement your VegBag, you can even order organic, free-range eggs from our locally chosen farm at £2 for 6 eggs. What better way to get your daily dose of vitamins, fibre, and taste!
The more people that sign up for the scheme the greater the choice of items available. Bags are always going to be cheaper than the supermarket prices for organic produce!
How do I order?
After you've decided on the size you want to try, you can order your bag using this website, or make cash payments at the RGU Union office on Union Way, but make sure to get your order in by the fortnightly Tuesday deadline!
If you want to save some time and simplify the process, you can now block-book vegbags in advance. Simply add multiple bags to your online order, the ordering system is very flexible so you can get your VegBag whenever works for you!
Collections are available at the Union office on the date above. You can bring your own shopping bag to carry the goodies or you can click here to book one of our sturdy jute bags for £2 deposit (jute bags are reusable so you only have to pay this deposit once).
What others perks?
If you want to get more involved you can come help us pack on collection days or you can join a small dedicated team of students who coordinate the scheme, ordering sourcing receipes and calculating the share of things to go in the bag.
As always, do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in getting involved and helping out with the scheme!
