Food Security Distribution Centre

The Mustard Seed

Redistributes Fresh, Nutritious Foods

The Food Security Distribution Centre rescues and receives over 10,000 pounds of food each weekday from over 32 local grocery stores and donors, and safely distributes it via 75 local social service agencies, positively impacting the estimated 70,000 food insecure individuals in our region. The FSDC partners with Flourish School Food Society to deliver meals to 17 schools.

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