In partnership with London Drugs, Quest takes food products that are at or near expiry, or that would otherwise be wasted, and ensures they get used, safely and with dignity, by people that need them most.

The parking lot of London Drugs Royal Oak was turned into a recycling party with music playing, a Community Appreciation BBQ serving up hot dogs, and a steady stream of recyclers from the community dropping off items at the different charity and recycling stations.
