Spring has officially sprung at the David Suzuki Foundation office when we switch from soup club to salad club!
It's easy to set-up. Try it at your workplace — with friends or neighbours, too!
Benefits of salad club membership:
- Cheap, delicious, nutritious lunches
- Lunch away from your desk — ideally outside, with people you like
- Less waste — fewer plastic containers from take-out and buying lunch
These are but a few of the benefits! You'll probably find many more...

How salad club works:
Each week, people take turns bringing greens and homemade or store-bought dressing.
Post a sign-up sheet in the kitchen with the dates (e.g., at DSF, it's every Wednesday at noon) and a row to add names. Each club member signs up once. If there are 10 members, each gets nine low-effort, nutritious and delicious lunches!
On salad club day, everyone else brings one item to share.
Suggestions: pickled vegetables, cheeses, quinoa, nuts (check for allergies) and seeds, chick peas, fresh herbs, dried or fresh fruit, etc.
This is a great recipe for a community salad bar — and a great way to use up stuff in your fridge or pantry! Add your own twist depending on your work culture and member creativity.
