As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the African Arts & Cultural Contributor Contributor Society is launching a new program called La Teranga. Every week from August - November, we are providing food baskets of culturally relevant food staples to members of the African descent and black community living in Victoria, Saanich, Langford, Duncan, and Nanaimo. To qualify, you have to be of African descent and be low-income.

The baskets will contain a mix of culturally relevant perishable and non-perishable food items. You only have to fill out this form once, and we will send you an email the week before confirming you will pick up your basket. A few delivery spots are available in the Victoria/CRD/Ladysmith areas every week.

Pick Up Dates/Locations (3:30-5:30pm)
Victoria (August 20 , August 27, September 24, November 12)
Duncan (August 21, October 1, October 22 )
View Royal (September 10, October 8)
Central Saanich (September 3, November 5)
Langford (August 27)
Nanaimo (September 17, October 15, October 29)

The pick up date for Week 7 October 1st. Due to funding limitations, our weekly capacity is 60 baskets per week. The first 60 households to confirm via email sent on Monday at 8am will receive a basket.
