Wider outreach and more efficient distribution to benefit the community

Montreal Food Baskets today announced a partnership with MADA Community Centre. The objective is to ensure that everyone in Montreal’s Jewish community celebrates Passover with dignity and that anyone in need receives a food basket packed with nutritious kosher food and festive treats.

Established in 1947, Montreal B’nai Brith Food Baskets (now Montreal Food Baskets) has a strong legacy of support from the community. Each year, volunteers give of their time to pack and deliver holiday food baskets. MADA was founded in 1993 and has grown to become Québec’s largest food charity. By collaborating, the two organizations will distribute more food baskets with greater efficiency. Specifically, MADA will now manage the collection, warehousing and packing of food for Passover baskets.

“Sadly, the number of people in need seems to grow year-over-year,” says Rabbi Chaim Cohen, Executive Director, MADA. “In tough economic times, charitable organizations need to be more efficient, just like everyone else. By merging our efforts, we can accomplish more. MADA’s expertise is the collection and distribution of food. Combining our strengths with Montreal Food Basket’s fundraising capabilities and large network of volunteers, we will help more people celebrate Passover with dignity. This partnership is a source of pride to all involved,” adds Rabbi Cohen.

Montreal Food Baskets is entirely operated by volunteers and all funds raised by the organization are exclusively for the procurement of kosher food products.
