Homelessness is a major problem in MTL, and throughout the rest of Canada. That’s why we chose to team up with Montreal’s Blankets For The Homeless organization. On top of raising awareness, they collect food donations as well as clothing donations. During the winter months of 2016, on the last Sunday of each month we gave out food at Parc Lafontaine. Comfort food is meant to comfort people, so we made sure to give out our most popular dishes. On top of it being a huge success, it’s always a fun time to sit down and actually talk to this marginalized group. To find out how you can get involved, reach out to us and will be happy to discuss our community initiatives further.
Check out an interview with their co-founder Jonathan Naccache.
