"  [Food service] provides food for users, residents, volunteers and employees. The menus are created every day from precious gifts made to Maison du Père, which makes the task quite unpredictable and requires to know how to constantly improvise.  [Sandra] says that "this is the challenge of every day: how we can spoil the users today, how we can make them happy." " 

Maison du Père Coordinator


We accept food donations, clothing donations and small appliances.

However, we do not accept clothing with holes and / or stains: the items received must be clean and in good condition. We dress men who deserve to keep or regain their dignity!

Due to lack of storage space, we cannot accept large household appliances and furniture, with occasional exceptions (moving a participant to an apartment, for example).

For food donations, as we serve more than 1000 meals per day, we prefer large quantities. We accept food donations from individuals and wholesalers, as well as unsold items from grocery stores or restaurants.


Flat sheets for simple bed

New underwear sizes medium and large

Examples of donations



We still accept clothing donations. However, for the safety of all, we ask you to wash the clothes well before giving them to us and to put them in a closed plastic bag. In addition, collection from private individuals is now restricted.


Thank you for your understanding.
