The mandate of the Alternative Food Aid service is to ensure the clientele’s food needs are met in emergency situations. Furthermore, the service adopts an accompaniment approach to develop the clientele’s autonomy while also directing them towards other resources that offer a more sustained and regular support if necessary.
The Service has 33 active volunteers on a weekly basis in one of the following 3 fields of activity :
- Accompany clientele through food selection
- Treat and analyze requests (files)
Created in 2007, this service is offered to any person living in Laval who has a food emergency. The beneficiaries can leave a symbolic contribution if they wish.
