About Santropol Roulant:
Founded in 1995, Santropol Roulant (SR) is a community organization run primarily by young adults that uses food as a vehicle to drive social change. Its programs are novel approaches to active youth engagement, urban food systems, food security and community care.
SR’s main program is its Meals-on-Wheels (MOW) service, which consists of young people preparing and delivering healthy, home-made meals to the homes of mainly elderly individuals living with a loss of autonomy. On average, the MOW service delivers 100 meals 5 times per week, and helps to break down social isolation for its clients. SR also operates an urban agriculture program, growing organic crops at its rooftop garden, at a campus garden at McGill University, as well as a small farm on Montreal’s West Island. The produce grown is then sold in neighbourhood markets, distributed in fresh baskets, and used for the MOW program. Other programs operated by SR include a community bike workshop, a beekeeping collective, and garden workshops. Through its programs, SR aims to effect more significant change in the community and in the world by engaging young people in social and environmental issues.
In F2014, SR's total revenues decreased to 1.0m from 1.2m and program costs remained flat at $0.9m. Fundraising costs increased to 6% of donations from 4% in the previous year. Administrative costs rose to 8% of revenues from 6% in F2013. It currently has negative funding reserves and program cost coverage due to $0.5m in long-term debt, associated with the purchase and renovation of a new building.
