About Moisson Montreal:

Founded in 1984, Moisson Montreal (MML) is Canada’s largest food bank. MML collects, sorts, stores, and distributes food to community organizations across Montreal. The charity runs three main programs: food distribution, food recovery, and Feeding the Future.

In F2018, MML donated 15.6m kilograms of food worth close to $86m. This food was donated to 241 community organizations that fight poverty by providing food assistance across Montreal. The organizations were able serve 507,000 meals and fulfill over 650,000 food requests each month.

The charity reports that 40% of food grown is wasted or expires and is not eaten. The food recovery program recovers unsold food from more than 100 supermarkets and redistributes it to people in need. The program helps roughly 38,000 people each month.

MML reports that over two million children in Canada suffer from undernourishment. The charity’s Feeding the Future program is designed to provide meals during the summer to children who rely on subsidized meal programs during the school year. This program delivers close to 39,000 lunches over the course of the summer.

Results and Impact:

MML’s food distribution was able to serve nearly 137,000 people, of whom over 41,000 were children. The organization’s food recovery program saved 523,124kg of meat, 264,277kg of baked goods, 106,493kg of frozen food, 56,386kg of fruits and vegetables, and 323,088kg of miscellaneous foods, with a total value of $11m. The Feeding the Future program served lunches to 916 children across 12 camps.

Financial Review:

Moisson Montreal is one of Canada’s Major 100 charities, which received monetary donations totaling $4.1m and food donations worth $86.2m in F2018. Administrative costs are 1% of revenues and fundraising costs are 20% of monetary donations. For every dollar donated, 79 cents go to its programs. This is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead expenditures. MML has net funding reserves of $2.9m (excluding food donations). This can cover program costs for almost 12 months.
