- Proof of revenue (allowances, social assistance, unemployment benefits, etc.)

- Reusable bags (3-4) or transportation bags
Plan for transportation home with your groceries.
Moisson Estrie has been offering food assistance services by appointment to individuals and families of the Eastern Townships since 1998.
When referred to us by a professional or a support network, each request for food assistance is processed during the first meeting where the individual’s eligibility will be assessed.
Respect and attentiveness
Food assistance officers meet one-on-one with applicants to explain how the food bank works.
At this meeting, individuals are asked to explain the situation that has led up to their request for assistance. Each applicant is treated with attentiveness and respect. Officers tailor the frequency of assistance to the individual’s specific needs and make referrals to the appropriate resources.
Applicants visit the social market, where they can choose the items they need, while respecting certain rules regarding the quantity and variety of products.
Also, some fresh products (milk, bread, eggs, etc.) are available at a reduced price in our what we call our “small store”. These purchases must be paid in cash.
