About Moisson Montreal:
Founded in 1984, Moisson Montreal (MML) is the largest food bank in Canada, providing food aid to people in Montreal. MML collects food donations and distributes food to local charities that feed poor people in Montreal. The charity also runs a food recovery program in which it retrieves excess food supplies from supermarkets. MML has a social and professional integration program for people with disabilities. Under this program, MML gives handicapped people the chance to volunteer for Moisson Montreal along with MML’s employees.
Moisson Montreal is Canada's largest food bank. In F2017, Moisson Montreal distributed $80m worth of donated food. MML gave away 14.2m kilos of food by working with 254 community organizations. The local charities and suppliers fed, on average, 137,000 people every month. Moisson Montreal reports that every $1 donated to the food bank turns into $15 worth of donated food.
MML publishes the Hunger Count report annually. This report gives a breakdown of the food bank’s clients and details the problem of poverty in Montreal.
