How to Help the Roulant

Featured, Meals-on-Wheels, News

With the new containment rules, seniors in Montreal need Santropol Roulant’s services even more. Here’s how you can help your community.

Volunteering

At the moment, the needs for volunteers are being met for the Roulant. If we have additional needs, we will reach out to the community again. We ask that you only call the Roulant if you already are a volunteer, to reduce the risk of compromising our ability to offer our essential Meals-on-Wheels service.

We invite you to join the various mutual help groups, including the central group in Montreal, to help respond to the many daily requests. You can also do quick check-ins with your neighbours to see if they have needs. Please take all precautionary measures to avoid risks to your health and that of your neighbours.

Sign Up For Organic Baskets

One of the best way to support the Roulant and make sure you have fresh, organic and local produce is to sign up for a basket from Ferme du Roulant. Our farm is located in Senneville on the island of Montreal and grows certified organic fruits and vegetables on 3 acres.


Donate

Concentrating all of our energies on pursuing the Meals-on-Wheels service increases operating costs while decreasing revenues from other activities. If you have the capacity, you can donate to your community. All the sums will be used so that the Roulant can continue its mission and feed the seniors in Montreal and people with a loss of autonomy or reduced mobility.


Follow instructions

We ask the community and the population to scrupulously respect the instructions issued by the health authorities, in order to protect the most vulnerable and limit the spread of COVID-19. Wash your hands regularly, do not wear gloves or masks if you do not have symptoms or do not know the protocols to put them safely, keep a physical distance from people when you are in a public place, avoid any indoor or outdoor gatherings, and limit your travel.

You can also see all the health and safety measures that the Roulant applies in its space and during deliveries.

Send a message of encouragement

You can always send a message of encouragement to the community and the team! All these messages help and brings comfort.

The community is much stronger united!
