Together, we will build a 450 sq. ft. commercial processing kitchen and rebuild bathrooms and offices for the Mustard Seed and Food Share Network in their warehouse in Esquimalt on Viewfield Road.
With the support of Rotary and the Victoria Foundation, the Mustard Seed has partnered with the Food Share Network to enhance food security by acting as the central hub, distributing food to over 50 different agencies, directly benefiting over 35,000 people every month.
This processing capacity of this kitchen will lower their perishable food waste and turn them into soups, stocks, preserves, etc. This means more good food to kids, families, single moms, the homeless, and other vulnerable populations through community centers, schools, soup kitchens, churches, and more.
This commercial kitchen will also be used by other organizations to operate important programs, like building food skills and literacy to a wide array of vulnerable populations.
