About us

HISTORY

Moisson Sud-Ouest (MSO), the food bank of the Suroît region in the Montérégie area, began its activities in 1989. Five citizens, member of the Valleyfield poverty consultation table, gathered to make a concrete gesture in response to the growing problems of worsening poverty of the Southwest population.

Today, Moisson Sud-Ouest, , continues to meet the needs of people who are experiencing difficult socioeconomic situations in the regional county municipalities (MRC) of Beauharnois-Salaberry, Haut-Saint-Laurent and Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

As a member of Quebec’s Food Banks network, Moisson Sud-Ouest benefits from the sharing of food supplies as well as a significant financial support since its inception. This invaluable support has enabled them to go through several years of precariousness.

MISSION

In a social context where individuals and families do not eat their fill on a daily basis, Moisson Sud-Ouest’s mission is to pick up foodstuffs from several suppliers predominantly located on its territory and to daily distribute them thus, ensuring an optimal food supply to the accredited organizations so that in turn, they can alleviate hunger of part of the population they serve and who need the help the most.

« Moisson Sud-Ouest collects food items and redistributes them daily to accredited organizations in order to alleviate hunger. »

OUR VISION

As the single food bank of the Suroît region; we strive at becoming a leader in sustainable development of food by innovative actions to reduce wastage while developing the participation of individuals in close collaboration with our committed partners.
