Satisfy your creative appetite!
Get creative for your chance to win $1,000 and see your artwork come to life with our Spud mural contest!
From Vancouver to Red Deer, Nanaimo to Kamloops Spud proudly delivers fresh local groceries to thousands of doors each week.
Clocking up the kilometers our vans are well known across Alberta and British Columbia. In the cities and towns we serve, you’re guaranteed to see our vans driving through the streets of your neighbourhood delivering boxes of delicious food.
While it is usually food cravings we aim to satisfy, it’s your creative appetite that we are feeding with our next adventure.
We are looking to revamp the wall on our BC, Main Street store in Vancouver, Organic Acres Market, as well as updating artwork on our delivery vans across our locations, and we are reaching out to you, our community, for support! Whether you’re a budding artist or if design and murals are your thing, we invite you to bring some va va voom to our delivery vans and brighten up the walls of our retail store. Let your imagination flow when bringing Spud to life through your creations.
Two winning designs will be selected, one will become the hottest new mural in the city on the walls of our Organic Acres, Main Street, Vancouver while the second design will take to the streets in British Columbia and Alberta.
We are giving entrants the opportunity to bring Spud and our ethos to life. Feel free to let your ideas flow and represent Spud by incorporating our focus on sustainability, local groceries, and delivery service into your designs.
