How to shop at Quest / The Benefits of Volunteering

For every four hour shift that a Quest volunteer works, we receive a thirteen dollar food voucher which can be redeemed in the Quest store the day of our shift. While thirteen dollars may not go far in a typical grocery store, it can go a long way at Quest!

One volunteer shift is very helpful for both Quest as a not for profit organization and for volunteers, as individuals as well as for their families.

Here are a couple of examples, of a shopping trip I would make at Quest using my $13 voucher.

Vegetarian
2 lbs tomatoes
1 lb yellow beans
4 baby cucumbers
1 watermelon
Tortilla chips
Salsa (907 g)
Loaf of bread
Peanut butter
Yves Veggie Ground Round
Cuisine To Go (Thai curry tofu, rice, and vegetable prepared meal)
One liter Organic milk
1 box double chocolate chip cookies
Total cost = $12.88


Meat
1 lb (bone in) chicken
1 box Shake and Bake
1 lb yellow beans
1 lb squash
1 head of Romaine lettuce
2 cucumbers
Loaf of bread
2 liters Organic milk
1 box Creamy Chicken soup (1 liter)
1 box Seashell Treasures chocolates
2 boxes double chocolate chip cookies
Total cost = $12.92
