Giving feels good! Did you know that giving stimulates the areas of the brain involved in the sensation of pleasure? All the more reason to give! Here are three ways to contribute to Moisson Montréal:
1. Become a volunteer
Moisson Montréal’s volunteers play a major role and without them, fulfilling our work would be challenging. In 2020-21, we were able to count on more than 3,422 volunteers who contributed more than 64,039 hours of volunteer work, the equivalent of 35 full-time positions!
We have modified the layout of our work stations to ensure strict compliance with public health requirements.
Come and volunteer on your own, with friends, or with colleagues by emailing us at bénévolat@moissonmontreal.org

2. Make a financial donation
No matter how much you give, it will make a big difference! Thanks to our operating model which relies on food recovery rather than purchases as well as the exceptional generosity of our donors in terms of food and time, we benefit from an extraordinary multiplier effect: every dollar donated enables us to redistribute more than $15 worth of food.
This is one of the best ways of giving to Moisson Montréal. It is simple and allows you to spread your contribution over the entire year. Your monthly donation also enables Moisson Montréal to have a stable and predictable source of income to help plan for the long term.
