The Media Food Drive (MFD) began in Montreal in December 2001, with the collaboration of 16 members of the media. Starting on December 9, 2004, media organizations from the Suroît region followed in the footsteps of Quebec’s urban centres in organizing the first edition in Salaberry-de-Valleyfied in partnership with the founding members: CEZinc, CogecoTV (NousTV), Journal Saint-François, Journal Le Soleil and MAX103. As early as the second edition, the MFD grew; in 2005, the City of Beauharnois authorized a site during the event. In 2006, Coteau-du-Lac joined the effort. The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion rallied with the group in 2008, with the participation of VIVA Media. Finally, the City of Huntingdon provided a collection site. This coalition now allows for the implementation of over ten collection sites in the 3 RCM serviced by this organization. To this day, an amount of over $880,000 was raised. This amount comes primarily from the donations of citizens we meet in the streets who, each year, on the first Thursday of the month of December, share their generosity with the community.
