The Mustard Seed

Redistributes Fresh, Nutritious Foods

The Mustard Seed works with local retailers to redistribute fresh, nutritious foods through the Food Share Network. In the 22,000 sq foot warehouse, we rescue 10,000+ pounds of food per day that was destined for the landfill and distribute it safely to 70+ Food Share Network members. Our commercial kitchen allows us to turn many rescued foods into sauces, soups, stocks and smoothies while reducing waste output.

In partnership with the Food Share Network, we are progressively reducing both food insecurity and greenhouse gas emissions in the Greater Victoria area.
