Santropol Roulant (Quebec)

Santropol Roulant

Santropol Roulant is an award-winning community organization based in the Plateau neighbourhood of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The organization aims to use food as a vehicle to create trust and build bridges between individuals and generations. Unlike most meals on wheels organizations, Santropol Roulant's staff and volunteer base consists mainly of younger people. The meals on wheels service provides 80 to 90 hot evening meals five days a week, prepared and delivered by over 100 volunteers[1]. Many of the meals are delivered on foot or by bicycle to the homes of seniors and people living with a loss of autonomy.
