Furthermore, many political and public personalities will take part including actresses Anick Lemay, Tammy Verge, Catherine Brunet, Michèle Deslauriers, author India Desjardins, comedian Mario Jean, magician Luc Langevin, and more. Moisson Montréal spokespersons actress Élise Guilbault and multidisciplinary designer Justin Kingsley will also be there.

This year, our holiday food baskets contain 21 sought-after items from 13 generous donors, a record of which we are very proud.

For spokesperson Élise Guilbault, the Moisson de Noël is a must-attend event. "It is so moving to see how people rally in solidarity around the making of the holiday baskets. This event makes us more aware than ever that not everyone will have plenty of food over the holidays, especially given the current economic situation. But it is comforting to know that every gesture counts and that Moisson Montréal makes a real difference in people's lives."
