Food Collections

Meet us near the central courtyard to drop off your food donations in the box provided. The food donations will then make up the Christmas baskets that will be distributed to members of our community living with food insecurity. The holiday season will be sweeter and merrier for them!

Types of food accepted

All forms of non-perishable foodstuffs are accepted: canned goods and unbreakable containers, dry goods, snacks, personal hygiene products, household items, beverages, etc. Here are just a few examples of what we accept:

  • Canned fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, etc.)
  • Canned legumes (lentils, chickpeas, beans, etc.)
  • Canned or bagged meals (Kraft dinner, etc.)
  • Rice and cereals (rice, pasta, quinoa, couscous, bulgur, etc.)
  • Pasta sauces (meat sauce, tomato sauce, etc.)
  • Breakfast cereals

You can also make a cash donation via the online platform or directly to the organization, Centre de bénévolat et moisson Laval
