A Quebec media solidarity
initiative to help local food banks

 


 

Holidays with dignity

Demand for food increases during the Holiday Season. We’re working together to allow everyone to celebrate with dignity. The donations collected are also used in the months following the Media Food Drive when contributions are scarcer, but the needs are still there.

The media and Friends of the Media Food Drive lend their voices and resources to help redistribute donations to regional organizations supporting special initiatives during the Holidays as well as during the following months across Quebec.
