The situation is constantly evolving and differs from region to region. Food Banks of Quebec gathers together food assistance stakeholders to ensure the fair distribution of food. Contact us for more information.
Needs vary depending on the region, but the logistical costs of food banks generate financial needs. For every $1 donated, $12 worth of food—the equivalent of three full meals—is made and distributed to families living in poverty. Click here to help us.
The following food items are always needed:
- Pasta and rice
- Canned meat and fish
- Powdered and canned soups and stews
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Breakfast cereal
- Peanut butter
- Canned and powdered milk
- Fruit juice
- Pasta sauce
- Beans and legumes
- Infant formula and baby food
With a $ 1 donation, we can recover 1.5 kg of food. An average portion for an adult is 0.5 kg of food. So $1 donation = 1.5 kg = 3 meals.
