Whenever possible, we first source our produce and ingredients from the Annapolis Valley. Then we extend sourcing to suppliers in greater Nova Scotia. When we must import from out of province, we buy from local retailers like eosnaturalfoods in Wolfville (they carry the BEST organic spice selection) to ensure that the dollars you spend stay in a closed loop economy.
Piecemeal subscribers receive a weekly email that tells you where and who your food is coming from.

How are PieceMeal customers saving on their food bills?!?
According to Second Harvest Canada, households waste an average of $2,000 worth of food. By planning your meals around our basic plant based meals you may notice less wilty spinach or soft apples sitting in your refridgerator. This is good for the planet and your pocketbook!
The upfront monthly amount may feel pricey, but let's break it down a little.
First, the cost sharing model means on those tricky months where the bills are high you can sign up for $150/month That's $37.50 per week.
The regular price is $200/month which works out to about $8 per portion, less when the meal can be stretched for leftovers.
Fewer trips to the grocery store mean less spontaneous purchases and meal planning helps avoid pricey last minute hangry decisions; resulting in healthier, energy boosting food over the quick "supper snack"
The size of our meals has a lot to do with my experience eating as a college student. I was cooking for one and on a mission to eat mostly local food. But sometimes that gorgeous kale would wilt sadly at the back of the fridge. Not to mention I got tired of eating the same meal every night for a week. Worst, I found ingredients like locally made peanut butter would easily blow a large portion of my weekly budget.
With PieceMeal, a one- to two-person household can enjoy three deliciously different meals without overspending on special ingredients . Have you seen the price of turmeric?!
Busy households no longer have to worry about wasting what’s left of the giant portion of basil they bought at the grocery store, because we provide just what is needed for the meal!
The updated Canadian food guide recommends eating 50% fruits and vegetables plus 25% each of protein and whole grains. I mean, that old skool triangle thingy didn’t really work for me but this one makes sense right?
The kits regularly include grains and legumes to create a hearty meal. Keeping customization simple while we grow allows for higher product quality and lower prices.
Here are ways you can easily add extra protein to your meals:
When ordering from wfm2go add products from their other suppliers to arrive in the same bin! There are some excellent options from local farms. Tip: Stretch your protein choices with our kits to lower your intake.
Check out the protein suggestions in the weekly email and use this to do your shopping. Buy protein in bulk straight from a local producer like tempehkid or subscribe to a protein box like the one offered by afishionadomonger.
Your local veggies are packed in a reusable cotton mesh bag. The jars are returnable as well. Please wash jars and place them in your produce bag with the lids off. Return them to your pick up location. I appreciate your diligence to keep our jar return going and keep them out of landfills!
