Moisson Montréal wishes to thank the Malouf Family Fund and the Greater Montreal Foundation for its generous donation of $ 12,000 to theHunger doesn’t take a holiday campaign. The Malouf family has been an invaluable partner for Moisson Montréal’s projects and campaigns for 5 years now. This precious partnership allows us to work on our mission while respecting the fundamental right to feed oneself by having access to a variety of nutritious and good quality food. The Moisson Montréal’s team is very grateful for the faithful and generous involvement of the Malouf Family Fund and the Foundation of Greater Montreal in the summer campaign Hunger doesn’t take a holiday.
It is important to remember that during the summer, many families cannot receive food assistance usually provided by school food programs that cease operations during summertime. This new campaign seeks to raise awareness about this situation in Montreal during the summer season. Hunger affects more than 145,000 Montrealers, including nearly 35,000 children each month, and Moisson Montreal’s accredited organizations see their demand for food assistance increase. The campaign will allow to alleviate the burden of more than 250 community organizations who meet the needs of families in their neighbourhood.
Through the campaign Hunger doesn’t take a holiday, we invite Montrealers to participate in various initiatives and to share their experiences to create a movement of solidarity around the issue of hunger in Montreal during the summer.The campaign goal is to raise $45,000, which will help feed 17,000 young pupils (ages 3-17) and their families across the island of Montreal all summer long.
