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.
Starting in July, you can find us at 637 East Hastings Street, just one block away from our previous location.
Nearly 15% of British Columbians face the daily struggle of putting food on their tables. The affordability crisis leads to missed meals, reduced food intake, and even days without food, impacting mental health, social well-being, and burdening our provincial healthcare system.
The benefits of embracing seasonal eating extend far beyond the tantalizing flavours that grace our plates. By choosing locally harvested foods in sync with the seasons, we not only support our local economy, but also contribute to a healthier environment and personal well-being.
At Quest, our volunteers play a crucial role in helping us achieve our food rescue commitment to support families and individuals facing economic barriers.
