Dec 21 2017 0 Comments
So... What do you get for upping your subscription to Silver or Gold? We've done up a simple comparison to help you see the difference. To explain the differences in the memberships, we will use cola and cookies as examples.


Approximately 300 meals per semester of fully recognized name-brand products (e.g. Coca-Cola and Oreos).


Approximately 300 meals per semester of mostly mid-range-brand products with some off-brand products (e.g. President’s Choice Cola and President’s Choice “Eat The Middle First” cookies)


Approximately 300 meals per semester of mostly off-brand products. (e.g. no name Cola and no name “Twist & Shout” cookies).

FAQ's: Got a question? We probably have the answer! Check out these FAQ's below. If you don't find what you need, please feel free to email us!

    1. How much food do I get for each order?

      The amount of food you can order with each delivery depends on the types of food you choose. For example, if you are choosing only typically higher-priced items, such as steak, you won’t be able to order as much. That being said, you don’t have to eat only canned tuna and macaroni. We suggest a good balance of both. Quick Tip: breakfast and lunch items are very affordable. Most of your budget should be spent on dinner items.
    2. What additional food options do I get for the Silver and Gold package?

      Every membership has access to the same types of foods. However, as you move up the memberships, the brand quality increases. Want the gold-standard item even if you’re a bronze subscriber? Shoot us an email and we will do our best to accommodate you!
    3. Where do you ship to?

      Currently, we service colleges and universities in the Kingston, ON, Canada area. Expansion plans are underway!
    4. Do I have to subscribe to a specific membership, or can I just order what I want?

      Yes, you must choose a specific membership.
    5. Can I cancel my membership?

      Yes, you can. To cancel a membership, email one month in advance of your desired cancellation.
    6. Will I ever run out of food like I did with my meal card?

      No! You should not run out of food. Typical meal cards are designed as a supplement. Student Grocer is designed as a full grocery program. You will always have food delivered to your house every ten days. BUT... if you invite all your pals over and have a snack fest, you may run out before your next delivery.
    7. Can I share a meal plan with my roommate?

      In theory, you could do this. If you chose to share with 1 roommate, we would definitely suggest you supplement your shared plan with other food or eating out. Hey, at least you could both rest easy knowing there will always be some food in the house!
