Accreditation Officer (12 month contract)

Moisson Montréal is a registered charity founded in 1984 and the biggest food bank in Canada. Its mission is to provide an optimal food supply for community agencies serving Montreal’s most vulnerable people while actively participating in the development of sustainable solutions to promote food security. Thanks to an operating model based on food recovery rather than food purchases as well as the great generosity of its volunteers and food donors, Moisson Montréal benefits from an extraordinary multiplier effect: each monetary donation of $1 enables the organization to distribute more than $15 worth of food. Moisson Montréal provides 20 million kilos of food per year to the vast food aid network, including nearly 300 community agencies on the Island of Montreal. These agencies, in turn, fulfill some 600,000 food aid requests per month.
