Food Banks of Quebec represents a large network of independent regional organizations concerned with distributing food donations and offering food-assistance services to the population, in every region of the province.
A Unified Provincial Network
This vast network is made of 19 Moissons and 13 Associate members, who supply nearly 1,200 local, affiliated organizations. They are all registered non-profit organizations (NPOs) under the Canada Revenue Agency, and they are governed by a charter and a board of directors.
Members support each other by sharing expertise and some of their resources. Within our association, they benefit in particular from our distribution of money or food donations. Moisson members are involved in Food Banks of Quebec through the members’ council and through reserved seats on our board of directors.
Moisson members are regional organizations whose primary mission is food assistance. With their extensive infrastructures, they act as sorting centres and handle the redistribution of food donations within their respective territories. Moissons ensure an appropriate solicitation of local and regional food suppliers.
All Moisson Members
Associate members are organizations offering food assistance services in a region not covered by a Moisson. Associate members are mostly located in remote regions, far from major centres, such as the North Shore, the Gaspé Peninsula, and the Magdalen Islands. They ensure an appropriate solicitation of local food suppliers.
All Associate Members
Affiliate members are local organizations offering direct food assistance to the population in need. They are accredited by the Moisson or Associate member overseeing the region. Affiliate members may be food banks, collective kitchens, community restaurants, Meals on Wheels, snack services for children, women’s shelters, immigration assistance centers, among others.
