As part of


SALIM accompanies and supports structuring and collective solutions in the Montreal local and solidarity food supply network.

In this sense, our team works in collaboration with a variety of local change partners with complementary roles to promote the emergence, implementation and sustainability of these solutions. 


To make healthy, locally grown food accessible to food insecure people in Montreal and, more broadly, to all Montrealers.  


SALIM’s mission is to reinforce the supply network of community food organizations in Montreal with fresh, healthy and local foods while improving local producers’ access to markets.
