About The Great Food Drive for Children

Initiated in 2012 by Moisson Montréal, The Great Food Drive for Children is a campaign to raise funds and collect foodstuffs for babies and toddlers to better meet the basic needs of more than 21,000 young children (0-5 years) living in poverty in the Greater Montreal area. Uniting the efforts of Moisson Montreal, Moisson Rive-Sud and of the Centre de bénévolat et moisson Laval, The Great Food Drive for Children aims at supplying the three beneficiary organizations with sufficient baby and toddler products in order to better support families and children in need living in their respective regions.
