Share the Warmth: Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation

By: Heather @ 8:18 am

Share the Warmth provides food to over 700 people each month through their food bank serving Point St. Charles and south west Montreal.  Donations of food are highest closest to Christmas – however, in the summertime, needs are high as kids are home from school and do not have access to school food programs.  More than one in five of the 700 people who rely on Share the Warmth’s food bank are under 17 years old.

Fiona Crossling, Executive Director of Share the Warmth, has noted that items such as canned tuna, pasta sauces and vegetables will go a long way to assist these people in need.  For more information on the current situation, please listen to Fiona in her interview with Terri DiMonte on CHOM and read the Montreal Gazette article of today.

You can bring canned and dried goods to Share the Warmth, 625 Fortune St. (corner Wellington) Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Or contact the centre at 514-933-5599.
