Taking Care: Covid Updates June 2022


Taking care of  the community is at the heart of the Roulant’s actions, and as the past few years have shown us, our relationships and the nature of our interactions matter more than ever. That’s why, in light of the encouraging sanitary situation, masks are now optional for all at the Roulant. Masks (surgical or N95) are still available any …

What a show of support!

Thank you so much! Nearly a month after the 2021 Winter Campaign ended, we are still speechless at the unprecedented wave of support from the donor community.

Protecting the Community


The Meals-on-Wheels is an essential service that helps keep seniors with a loss of autonomy or with limited mobility active in their community. We have made every effort since the beginning of the pandemic to create special moments between these clients and other members of the Roulant community, all while keeping safety a top priority. Due to the increase in …

We are excited to announce that for the rest of the 2021 season (until December 8th) we will be able to operate in a limited capacity inside the bike shop!

Adapted Sanitary Measures


With the transition to the green zone for the Montreal metropolitan area, you may have seen an easing of some of the measures that have been in place since the beginning of the pandemic. Considering that the Roulant serves a more vulnerable population, we still have many barriers in place, but the experience of volunteering at the Roulant is nonetheless …

More Wheels, More Meals

As the need in the community for an accessible, affordable, nutritious food service increased, we looked for ways to scale up the Meals-on-Wheels program to serve more meals than ever before, all while ensuring the safety of clients and volunteers through physical distance and increased sanitary measures. One solution was to split up our delivery routes. Suddenly, our seven delivery …

Three clients of the Meals-on-Wheels program have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past few weeks. Luckily, any exchanges that may have occurred between these clients and Roulant volunteers would have taken place when these three clients were not contagious. While instructions for Meals-on-Wheels clients are to not open the door during a delivery, direct interactions with volunteers remains a …

How are you? Caring Calls in Times of Quarantine

COVID19, Meals-on-Wheels, Volunteering - Personal

Since the very beginning of Santropol Roulant, one of the components of our work has been social inclusion. During meal deliveries, volunteers usually interact with clients, even momentarily; just like a short visit that can have an uplifting impact on the clients. Unfortunately, since the COVID19 pandemic, one of our prevention measures has been not to enter in contact with …

3 bénévoles travaillent en cuisine en temps de pandémie

This is one of the hardest and most emotional decisions we’ve made in recent years at Santropol Roulant. We have now suspended all volunteer shifts in the kitchen for the duration of the sanitary crisis. The kitchen of the Roulant has always been a place for inclusion, engagement, learning, conversation, and well-being. It really is at the heart of the …
