Dear parents, 

Emergency food assistance is being set up in Quebec in response to COVID-19. The Quebec Government, the Food Banks of Quebec and the Breakfast Club of Canada are working together to support individuals and families facing food insecurity, created or worsened by current events. For the time being, families with school-age children who have food needs are being prioritized. 

Being adequately fed contributes to good health. The difficult situation we are currently experiencing because of COVID-19 may increase your need to seek help. Do not be shy to reach out, should you need it. 

If you need food assistance, please visit the following website:  You can also contact the principal at your child’s school, and they can direct you to nearby resources. If you are unable to go to a food bank due to confinement restrictions or for any other reason, we suggest that you check to see if delivery service is available. 

We remind you that it is important to follow directives issued by the Public Health Department, including the following:

  • Follow instructions on physical distancing: as much as possible, keep a minimum distance of two metres between individuals.
  • Wash your hands with soap under warm running water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand rub if soap and water are not available.
  • Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette. 
    • Cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
    • If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.
  • If you are sick, do not go to the food bank; ask if delivery service is available.
  • If you have delivery service, avoid direct contact during delivery. If the items cannot be left outside your door, please open the door and step back so that the delivery person is free to safely deposit the items.
  • Clean product packaging and rinse fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them. 

If you are experiencing symptoms, please call 1-877-644‑4545. For any psychosocial support, call the Info-Social service 811

We are all looking forward to getting back to school. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue our joint efforts in the fight against the coronavirus, as everyone's contribution is essential. 

Kind regards,

Cindy Finn, Director General ​
