Food bank needs cash to bridge summer

Moisson Montreal says it needs to raise extra funds to get food to kids who go hungry over summer when they don’t get subsidized food at school. Given that we’ve had stories this year about how gentrification in poorer areas has made some schools ineligible for food aid, we’re looking at a wealthy city where a segment of kids is going to be hungry a lot of the time.

At the same time, while there’s concern about old lead pipes in school plumbing, François Legault doesn’t plan to do anything about it.
