25 years in the
The NDG Food Depot strives to eliminate hunger in a manner that ensures
dignity, community engagement and the development of human potential. We
have been serving NDG and the surrounding Montreal boroughs since 1986
and have been an independent charitable organization since 2003.
All our activities are based on the holistic approach that "Everything
is Nourishment". This includes having healthy food, authentic
relationships and opportunities for meaningful engagement and personal
development. Our aim is to create a balance between direct emergency
service and programs that promote self-reliance and community building.
The key difference between the NDG Food Depot and regular food banks is
our approach to the issues of food security. We are aware that food
banks do little to address the underlying issues that lead to hunger,
poverty and social isolation. We also appreciate that without access to
healthy food, people may not have the energy to participate in
initiatives that address these fundamental questions.
