Do you qualify to be a Quest Client?
Quest Clients are referred through a social service agency, a community-serving charity or non-profit, a church, social worker, doctor, nurse, teacher, principal or other professional sources or organizations whose mission is to support individuals facing economic barriers.
People from all walks of life can qualify to become a Quest Client. Many clients, for example, identify as a student, senior, refugee, survivor, single parent or guardian, caregiver, or person with a disability. At any given time, our clients may be experiencing a traumatic event in their life that impacts their work and financial stability such as a death in their family, the loss of a job, the loss of a home, separation or divorce, a new or changing health prognosis, or significant grief event.
How to Become a Quest Client
If you are an individual facing economic barriers, the Quest markets can help provide you with access to healthy and affordable food in three different ways:
1. If you are a card-carrying client of a local food bank or if you receive income assistance from the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction, you are automatically approved to become a client of quest. Simply visit a market and present your food Bank ID card or proof of assistance and you will be issued your own Quest Client ID card.
2. Alternatively, you can speak with your social worker or any individual in a position of support and service at an organization from which you receive support to request a referral.
3. If you need support in connecting with a social worker, please call 2-1-1 and your call will be directed towards an agency that can help.
