The Mustard Seed is a non-profit organization fighting hunger and restoring faith in Greater Victoria. We provide many crucial services for any and all people in need. From food to friendship, we aim to meet the physical, relational, and spiritual needs of the whole person. We have an active weekday drop-in centre that offers all sorts of services such as chapel, hair cutting, nursing, a clothing bank, access to home starter kits, and more. We regularly serve weekend meals and offer a host of other weekend activities. We run the largest Food Bank on Vancouver Island, providing nutritious hampers to our neighbours in need throughout the week. Our skilled staff offer advocacy, counseling, addictions recovery, and many other resources.
Above all, the Mustard Seed is a place of acceptance and unconditional love. We cultivate a community of compassion where all are welcome. As we fight hunger and poverty together, our staff and volunteers meet our guests where they’re at. We strive to break the cycle of poverty in our guests’ lives by offering them a hand-up, reminding everyone of their human potential and worth.
Our list of services is rather extensive and we can’t possibly cover all that we do here. We invite you to explore our website, read our history, learn more about our programs, and find out how to get involved! Or even better, come on down to 625 Queens Ave and check us out in person. We’d love to show you around. Click here in order to book a tour.
