Nourishing humankindness

OUR VALUES
Chesed, or love and kindness, drives all of Mada’s actions—it is reciprocal, pure and embracing of humanity on every level, and is reflected in our seven values.
WELCOMING

We embrace anyone who comes through our doors, with few questions asked and the dignity that all human beings deserve.

RESPECTFUL

We understand that at the root of all interaction is mutual respect, love and kindness.

TRUSTED

For 30 years, we have been an important and dependable source of nourishment and poverty relief for countless members of the community.

BEST-IN-CLASS 

We are proud to be an established leader in food security provision in Montreal, and related supports, and conduct ourselves as such—a true partner; confident without being boastful; an educator while also embracing growth.

RESOURCEFUL

At Mada, ‘no’ is not an answer, it is an opportunity to dig deeper, think bigger and expand our net of security and kindness.

FAMILY

The belief that we are all one caring family fuels our organization at every level and it is felt by all who are part of the Mada community.

NOURISHING

Food is an essential need, and we recognize that it also has the power to feed the soul in many ways, cultivate love and kindness among all it serves, and fuel change.

“What is chesed? It is more than empathy. It is a need to give. To give kindness and love. We say ‘We are all a caring family’ because for family,  you do anything. No judgement. When you love, you find the way.”

- Rabbi Chaim Shlomo Cohen, Mada CEO
