FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY – HOPE FOR THE HEART
Since 2011, Living Edge has been freely providing groceries on a weekly basis in the Quadra Village neighbourhood. We specialize in providing fresh food – not just canned goods – to local residents. We have grown to provide food for ten neighbourhood markets in the Greater Victoria Area!
Our dedicated volunteers serve the hundreds of families and individuals each week!
Living Edge is a not for profit project of the Anglican Network in Canada.
Living Edge demonstrates compassion for the needs of the homeless and marginalized in Victoria, BC.
Our original Neighbourhood Market distributes FREE, FRESH GROCERIES at the Quadra Village Community Centre, 901 Kings Rd.
While our volunteers arrive in the early morning to prepare the market style area, the public lines up. Beginning at 11 am, our guests are able to come through and pick up free groceries including fresh veggies, staple food items and occasionally some treats depending on what our sponsors have provided. On average, we prepare 60+ bags of food each week while another 200+ bags are filled by clients in the lineup.
We are always looking for a steady supply of food items to offer. If you or your business is interested in partnering with us in any way, big or small, please get in touch with our Food Distribution team. Call Neil at (250) 383-8915, or use the form on our Contact page.
Every week we make fresh groceries available to students as well as working families, single moms and dads, the elderly and others in the suburbs. Learn more about our amazing FRESH FOOD Distribution points: See all Neighbourhood Markets
