Soup kitchens are designed to help people living with food insecurity as a kind of last resort. They provide a full meal or soup to people who need free, quick support.

A community restaurant is a place where all are welcome to come eat, but also to socialize, build a network and participate in activities. Healthy meals with a variety of choices are available. The major difference between a community restaurant and a classic restaurant is the low price of meals at the former.

These businesses are community organizations and social economy enterprises. Developed with a mission of social integration, their defining trait is the combined presence of a training/integration track and revenue-generating operations, both carried out under a non-profit structure. Integration enterprises respond to needs for training and support in communities that struggle to join the labour market, with the goal of fighting poverty and social exclusion.

Like any other business, they manage human, material and financial resources and sell the goods or services that they produce. As an integration enterprise, we provide social integration in a real-life workplace.

Resto Plateau draws its revenue from two main sources:

  • its sales, meaning revenue generated autonomously through its catering and community restaurant sales
  • government subsidies and contributions from financial partners, such as Emploi Québec for the training program, Centraide, or the PSOC, to name just a few

Donations from the public also help finance Resto Plateau and make a difference.

Resto Plateau is a non-profit organization. Like any NPO, Resto Plateau has no shareholders. So, in a sense, it belongs to its members, and therefore to the community. Resto Plateau’s members vote annually on the major decisions and orientations of the organization and elect members for the Board of Directors amongst themselves. These board members nominate a candidate to the role of executive director.

There are many available food resources in Montreal’s different neighbourhoods. You can learn more about these resources by calling 211 or by searching this website
