Multicaf is an important community partner of the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough. The organization has been helping local residents for years.
Gaining access to fresh produce is not always easy for citizens on low incomes.
Local events like the mobile farmers’ markets help heighted public awarenes of the benefits of healthy eating.
Multicaf received a grant from the Direction de la santé de Montréal to stage mobile farmers’ markets meant to give people on low incomes easier access to fresh fruits and vegetables and promote healthy eating habits.
Mobile farmers’ markets will make stops at Parc Nelson-Mandela, Parc de la Savane and Place Darlington between July 16 and October 31, 2018. In each instance, Multicaf contacted the organization running the park chalet. The mobile farmers’ markets are presented in conjunction with anti-poverty activities held by the Community Development Corporation of Côte-des-Neiges.
