Giving, is fulfilling!

The Holiday Season is just around the corner and over 19,500 people will be turning to Moisson Outaouais and its member organizations to have enough to eat.

This is exactly what a young couple, expecting their first child, is going through. Émilie is starting the last trimester of her pregnancy and will soon be going on preventive leave. Her partner, Alexis, usually works long hours, but was injured recently. He now finds himself unable to work and the couple is suddenly confronted with a severely limited budget. They are starting to worry about the upcoming expenses given the high cost of baby products. The parents-to-be will have to rely on their local food bank. This vital support will allow them to feed themselves with dignity while ensuring the healthy development of their unborn child.Their story is only one of the hundreds we hear from the recipients of our member organizations.

Multiply your donation amount by 8 to find out the real value of the food aid you will be providing to a local family.

“I am always stressed out when going to the grocery store because my choices are limited. I really hope that my baby will get everything he needs to be strong and healthy.”
- Émilie
