MUSG senator pilots Growing Power program

Marquette University Student Government’s Business and Administration Committee is working to provide affordable, fresh, locally grown produce to the Marquette community.

The program, called Growing Power, will allow Marquette students to order a variety of fresh, seasonal produce grown by local farmers. The initiative will be tested through a pilot program in February to gauge interest. Students can order baskets in the MUSG office and pick up their orders later that week.

There are three Growing Power basket options available:

$9 Senior Basket: Provides approximately half the regular market basket and is designed to accommodate smaller households. The basket still contains varieties of produce, but in smaller quantities.

$16 Market Basket: Provides varieties of conventional and sustainably grown produce designed to last 2 to 4 people throughout the week. The basket contains a variety of both fruits and vegetables.

$22 Sustainability Basket: Provides a variety of certified organic and sustainably grown produce designed to last 2-4 people throughout the week. The basket contains a variety of both fruits and vegetables.

From Feb. 2 through Feb. 4 students can place orders in the MUSG office, AMU room 133 using credit or debit card.

Students can pick up baskets in the MUSG office Friday, Feb. 6 from 12-5 p.m. All produce that is not picked up will be donated to Campus Kitchen.

If you have any questions about Growing Power, please contact MUSG Business & Administration Chair Courtney Guc.
