Today, after a multi-year search for space, Quest Non-Profit Grocery Markets launched its brand-new 2000+ square foot market dedicated to serving Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Quest Outreach Society exists to disrupt the cycle of poverty through access to healthy and affordable food that is sourced sustainably.
By bridging the gap between food banks and traditional grocery stores, Quest provides a grocery experience based on principles of dignity, access, and sustainability. Quest believes in a grocery model that simultaneously supports community while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. A leader in redistribution, we work to actively redirect healthy, good food that would otherwise end up in the landfill and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Almost all of Quest’s food is donated by local food partners from across British Columbia and delivered across our five Lower Mainland markets at reduced cost to our client communities. Quest’s five grocery markets are located in Burnaby, Surrey, North Vancouver, East Vancouver, and the Downtown Eastside.
