Contribute to Hungry for Vacation
At this time of year, one dedicated to rest and festivities, Moisson Montréal would like to remind everyone that hunger doesn’t take a vacation for many people. That’s why we are launching the summer campaign Hungry for Vacation for the third year in a row.
With your support, you can help us meet their needs!
During the summer, many families on the island of Montreal suddenly have fewer food resources available to them because they can no longer benefit from school food aid or various programs that suspend their activities during the summer season. Moisson Montreal’s accredited partners see the demand for their support increase, and so our reserves empty quickly.
To meet the demand, Moisson Montreal aims to raise $60,000 to help underprivileged families to get the food they need during the summer. We also hope to raise awareness about this little known problem which affects families in all parts of the island of Montreal.
At the same time, Moisson Montréal is mobilizing to provide snacks or lunches during 8 weeks to 11 summer camps located in disadvantaged areas of Montreal. This program will positively impact 1006 children every day.
Together, let’s make a difference!

August: Feeding Our Future Picnic at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
