Did you know that most of the 19,500 monthly food-bank users in the Outaouais live alone?
Mr. Bernard Leduc, a retiree for the last four years, is a good case in point. Managing his diet is challenging because of diabetes and high cholesterol. Daily tasks such as preparing meals become more demanding as the physical and cognitive effects of aging take their toll. Faced with growing expenses, recurring medication costs, ever increasing grocery bills and impending home-care services, Mr. Leduc must rely on the local food bank. This fundamental service enables him to enjoy a measure of financial stability and a better quality of life.
Thanks to your contribution, Moisson Outaouais will be able to fill the food baskets distributed by its 71 affiliated organizations and partners to people in need.
