Quest Food Exchange: Redistributing Quality Surplus Food to Reduce Hunger with Dignity

Quest Food Exchange is a not-for-profit organization that provides dignified access to a variety of affordable and healthy foods to individuals facing food security challenges in British Columbia. Our primary objectives are to reduce hunger with dignity, build community and foster sustainability. Not open to the general public, Quest Food Exchange works in collaboration with food suppliers who donate their surplus food and community resource  partners who refer their clients. Our environmentally conscious food redistribution program includes delivery trucks, distribution centres and not-for-profit grocery markets to ensure the quality surplus food we recover is allocated efficiently to those who need it. Clients are empowered to choose what suits their needs in our friendly, safe and welcoming grocery market environment.
