Santropol Roulant

Community Benefit


Food for social inclusion

At Santropol Roulant, we use food as a vehicle to break social and economic isolation between generations in order to foster sustainable social change.

With the support of 1 500 volunteers each year, we grow, prepare, and deliver meals to Montrealers living at home with a loss of autonomy. Together, we create a continuum of engaging and inspiring services and activities to strengthen the social fabric of the community by increasing food security and social inclusion.

Our diverse programming includes:

  • a Meals-on-Wheels service;
  • urban and peri-urban agriculture;
  • educational workshops and activities;
  • intergenerational community events;
  • partnerships with organisations for education and for food distribution;
  • volunteer-run collectives, including a bike workshop, urban fruit harvesting, bee keeping, vermicomposting, and a mycology collective.

Our Impact

Intergenerational knowledge sharing

You can help us foster collective and intergenerational learning through our programs that focus on reliable access to food, increased social contact, and collective action in the community. While your impact extends to all members of the community, the two main beneficiaries of our work are youth and Montrealers living with a loss of autonomy.

Sustainable social change

Over the long term, you are empowering Montrealers (yourself included!) to make better informed decisions surrounding food, to grow their own food, to explore their interest in local food systems, and to channel their sense of value and belonging into collaborative relationships in the community.
