In this months Community highlight we are sharing more about the Mustard Seed in Red Deer. Our team spends every other Wednesday morning at The Mustard Seed making lunches for youth in our community.

They care for those in need by walking alongside them on their journey towards a life of wellness, dignity and independence. They strive to create a meaningful difference within the community and in the lives of those facing poverty.
