Working together for children and families

In Quebec, too many children are victims of poverty. In fact, poverty affects nearly 15% of children in the province. In Montreal, this rate jumps to nearly one child in three. Poverty has many faces, but it’s always hard to see how it hurts children. Children born into poverty have a high chance of being malnourished and having health problems. Their emotional, physical, intellectual and social development is also affected. In other words, their futures are at risk.

In 2016, Feed a Child supported 20 community agencies in Quebec

To launch its Feed a Child program in 2000, the LÉGER FOUNDATION aimed to go beyond food aid. In addition to providing meals and snacks, the selected agencies organize a range of activities and services for disadvantaged children that promote their emotional, intellectual and social development and give them a solid foundation for the future.

  • Counselling
  • Cooking workshops
  • Access to social housing
  • Training and social reintegration
  • Support and food security

Thank you for believing, as we do, in the potential of these children and their families as well as in a more just, open and dignified world.
