Moisson Montréal named to Charity Intelligence’s Top 10 Canadian Impact Charities List

Press Release

Charity Intelligence (CI) has released its 2019 Top 10 Canadian Impact Charities List and Moisson Montréal has been named one of Canada’s High Impact Charities.

Charity Intelligence, a must-read for Canadians looking for impact in their giving, provides donors with an annual list of the top 10 highest-impact charities found in Canada, to which donors can give confidently and make the most measurable difference.

Charity Intelligence reports are independent, meaning that the charities do not pay for ratings or accreditation. The rating is based on one aspect: for every dollar donated, what’s the measurable return. Charity Intelligence has picked the most effective Canadian charities that combat issues such as hunger, homelessness, health and improving education.

“Thanks to the generosity of our amazing volunteers and food donors, our costs are minimized and food waste is reduced. This creates a significant multiplier effect in that for every dollar donated $15 worth of food is redistributed”, said Richard D. Daneau, executive director of Moisson Montréal.

Moisson Montréal serves 253 accredited organizations and was helped this year by some 12,180 volunteers. Their food supplies are provided by more than 300 food donors, including 100 supermarkets. Moisson Montréal distributes nearly 15 million kilos of food (valued at over $85,000,000) to the vast food aid network, including 253 community agencies on the Island of Montreal.
