Mutual Aid

From the Farm to the Kitchen, We’re Building a Solidarity Food System

The Milton Parc Mutual Aid Network was created at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to support our neighbours in need. This is about ordinary people helping each other to ensure our basic needs are met and to break social isolation and fear. 

*Please note we have modified some of our activities for the Winter*

This is how we can help:

Lutheran Church food bank. Every second Wednesday, 6:30-8pm (February 10th, February 24th, March 10th), 3594 rue Jeanne-Mance: We are helping with food distribution at the Lutheran Church food bank. We will also be serving hot suppers here! Deliveries are possible: please get in touch if you would like to request a delivery.

Partage et Solidarité food distribution. Every Sunday 2-4pm, Galeries du Parc, 3590 Jeanne Mance: Free distribution of food in partnership with Partage et solidarité. As spaces are very limited, we are currently prioritizing those with the greatest food needs.

If you would like to sign-up yourself or someone you know, contact us: ccmp.miltonparc@gmail.com; 514-655-7714 (Dimitri Ok).

We can always use volunteers to help with cooking vegetarian meals and delivering food on foot. We reimburse the cost of ingredients for our cooks.

Future projects

We hope to organize collective kitchens and cooking workshops, social, cultural, and sports activities (online or outdoors), cooking/preservation workshops, and free exchange of used kids clothing over next few months and will need your help to do all of this. Get in touch if you are interested or you have ideas!
