Quest Holiday Hampers

Every December, in partnership with YVR, Quest Outreach Society works with dozens of non-profit partners and social service agencies to provide holiday hamper meals to over 1,000 families and individuals across the Lower Mainland. These hampers help feed families of 4-6 people and include a turkey and all of the vegetables, treats, recipes, and fixings families need for a beautiful holiday meal.
