Endless Possibilities

As an initiative of the Victoria Community Food Hub Society with a mandate of "Good Food For All," we are a commercial kitchen that strives to support local food entrepreneurs, make connections with local farms and suppliers, host community workshops and events, and facilitate kitchen skills training and work experience.

 

Our kitchen is located in the Mustard Seed Food Security Distribution Centre in Esquimalt, also home to the South Island FarmHub and Flourish! School Food society.

About us-Kitchen Connect - Shared Commissary Commercial Kitchen Victoria BC
Good Food for All

Our Mission

To promote a healthy and sustainable food system in the Capital Region.

Ensuring that our food system provides healthy food to the most vulnerable people in our community and works to increase their resources, food skills, and social connections for a healthier food secure future.

The Vision

Kitchen Connect will bring together facilities, equipment, training, and services to grow and strengthen the local food economy.

How We Are Different

The model strives to further innovative collaboration between food rescue initiatives, local farmers, and food processors. 

What We Do

We aim to support food processing entrepreneurs, farmers, social innovators, marginalized populations, and community members through shared access to infrastructure, programming, and resources. 

The Victoria Community Food Hub Society (VCFHS) was incorporated as a Charity in 2013.

An Integrated Hub

Kitchen Connect integrates with the South Island FarmHub and The Mustard Seed to offer training, incubation, kitchens, and storage.
