During these unprecedented times, the Food Eco District (FED) is looking to support struggling families, laid off workers and immunocompromised individuals by providing free start up food garden kits. While the supply chain of food to the island has not been impacted by COVID-19, the mass layoffs present a tougher challenge in the months ahead. On average, 53% of people in Canada currently live paycheck to paycheck and especially in Victoria where rents are high, many are struggling to afford ongoing access to fresh, healthy foods.
Not only will My FED Farm help build confidence in locals to be able to supplement their own diets, but fit provides mental health benefits, a great activity for the kids and a sign of hope in an uncertain time.
Thank you for helping us to get 500 homes in the Greater Victoria region growing!
