Victoria, British Columbia
With the goal of helping families feel cared for, nourished, and supported, their “Emergency Food Distribution Program” feeds approximately 100–120 people per week with its weekly free market. Of these, 60–70% are children. The first market began as a pilot project running for 16 weeks in the spring of 2020, with demand for the service increasing significantly over time. The Centre’s objective is to continue to meet the increased demand for food and to be able to run its free Wednesday food market for an extended period.
