Hello! This page is to centralize resources for the Community Food Support Initiative on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories.
Our goal is to make food free and accessible to those who need it. This is a community response premised on mutual aid rather than charity, we are not a non-profit or a business.
COVID-19 has only exacerbated existing food insecurity and inequality within our community. We aim to support folks in accessing food while making the process as barrier free as possible. Everyone in the community deserves access to healthy food.
How it works: We collect the food donations from local stores and bring them to Quadra Village Community Gym (QVCG) where it is safely sorted into individual hampers. As of now we are able to support around 75 households a month with weekly hampers. Volunteer drivers pick up hampers from QVCG and deliver to hamper recipients. We have implemented detailed health and safety standards for volunteers participating in the program to ensure it is as safe as possible. Community members who are facing barriers to accessing food can fill out a google form and request a free box for delivery. Sign up to volunteer below!

Stickers designed by Lauren Davies
Stickers now available at Camas Books or as described below!
Suggested donation is $2-5+. We can mail them, or you can pick them up on Tuesdays at QVCG - email for details or we can mail them. If you'd like to have it mailed, we hope you'll consider donating a bit more to offset the price of stamps etc. Stickers are like 3-4ish inches (but take that with a grain of salt)
