The Living Edge Community is a society operated by a group of volunteers from all segments of the Greater Victoria population who work together with food distributors, retailers, charities, and other community partners to offer weekly free Neighbourhood Markets in ten areas of Victoria where people on low income reside. A community dinner, in the heart of downtown, is also served every Sunday and has become a safe and friendly gathering place for many families.
Over 8,000 families every month receive fresh vegetables and staples, market-style, once a week. Our community dinner on Sundays serve over 130 adults and 40 children every week.
