What is the Mustard Seed Food Bank and Street Church?
The Mustard Seed is a non-profit organization fighting hunger and restoring faith in Greater Victoria. They 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. They have an active weekday drop-in center that offers all sorts of services such as chapel, hair cutting, nursing, a clothing bank, access to home starter kits, and more. They 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 neighbors 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. They cultivate a community of compassion where all are welcome. The Mustard Seed fights 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.
