When COVID approached, we took a survey of our clients and discovered that many were not leaving their homes to get groceries or meals and were in desperate need of food delivered to their homes. Many could also no longer afford to eat healthy meals due to their situation.
As a result, in early 2020, MADA created the Meals-A-Partager program, so people could get 6-days worth of prepared nutritious meals, delivered directly to their homes.
As one client wrote:
MADA West Island
MADA learned, through discussion with its clients, that many of its clients, and people in need, were in the West Island but found it too far to come to the MADA location on Decarie. As a result, The West Island MADA location was opened in late 2020 and started serving meals for pick up. In 2021 it continues providing meals and fresh produce to clients once every week. We also started giving clients the option to pick up their monthly “Chez Makolet” orders from there and have volunteers pick up the Shabbat to “Share and “Meals à Partager” boxes to deliver from there if they live closer to that location, making it more convenient all around!
We have learned that clients would like to have new good quality clothes for respect and dignity so we have has a few clothing giveaways of brand new quality clothes in 2020.
We are constantly listening to our clients’ needs and adapting to provide them. We are all family.
