ABOUT THE SEED
The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been caring for individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty since 1984. Operating in five cities across Alberta and British Columbia, The Mustard Seed is a supportive haven where people can have their physical, mental, and spiritual needs met and grow toward greater health and independence. We have been an agent of change for more than three decades, thanks to our donors, volunteers, and support from the community.
The Mustard Seed Red Deer
The Mustard Seed Red Deer meets the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness and poverty by providing our
community with a variety of programs and services, offered in safe and supportive spaces.
School Lunch Program
This program aims to assist families and schools with food security. The quality of food is essential and an important ingredient that contributes to the children’s success and development. It’s important that the students have the ability to learn instead of focusing on the hunger that they are experiencing. Each day, around 425 students at 48 schools in Central Alberta receive healthy and nutritious lunches.
The barriers preventing people from transitioning out of poverty and homelessness are as unique as the individuals facing them. Our wellness advocate breaks down these barriers by meeting with clients to determine which programs and services best meet their needs. These health and wellness services include counselling, medical doctor and nurses, assistance with obtaining ID, employment, income support, and housing, community resources, drop-in programming, and much more.
The dinner program not only provides hot meals three nights per week, but an opportunity for those living in homelessness and poverty to build a sense of community with our staff and other guests. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday meals are served in-person, following all physical distancing and COVID-19 guidelines, along with offering take-away meals.
There are a variety of drop-in programs and services such as haircuts, coffee and snacks, movie nights, prayer meetings, Bible studies, and many more. All programming follows proper physical distancing and COVID-19 guidelines.
Join us for an evening featuring live entertainment, exceptional fare courtesy of Bo’s Bar & Grill, and an opportunity to network with Red Deer and surrounding area philanthropists, business executives, and community leaders – all while raising funds to support Central Albertans struggling with food insecurity.
