Much more than food assistance

At Moisson Estrie, individuals who receive support visit our social grocery store, where they can choose the items that will be part of their food basket. Additional items that are not covered by our free assistance program may be purchased at a very low cost:

Collective purchasing service or additional foodstuffs at a lower cost – 50% of grocery store prices.

The “in between” service known as Le Trait d’union provides access to low-cost groceries between two free food aid visits, in order to further support individuals in need.

Foods prepared in our food processing kitchen, supported by IMMEX Société immobilière, are sold at affordable prices.

Additional food assistance is offered during the back-to-school period as well as over the Holidays.

Our accompaniment and support service (SEME)

Moisson Estrie’s support service known as SEME accompanies individuals in need through the provision of direct food aid at our social market. Food aid officers on our team meet with each person to assess their situation and determine their eligibility and frequency of food assistance. Officers also refer individuals in need to other programs in the region.
