Grant funds allowed us to purchase nutritious foods for deliveries and stock the community fridge. Most of our food comes from donations, but we supplement food donations with weekly purchases. Every week, Community Food Support volunteers pick up, purchase, sort, and distribute food to over 80 households in Greater Victoria.

Learning: it can be challenging to recruit and retain volunteers, so we created an onboarding package for all volunteers; cleanliness at the fridge is an ongoing issue, so we hosted social fridge cleaning events to keep it tidy; and we continuously adapt the foods we buy based on costs, availability, and recipient feedback.
