    The only truck to transport the food for the Christmas baskets for Moisson Kamouraska has been in an accident, which places the organization in a catastrophic situation to a few days of Christmas.

    The truck crashed into a power pole Friday in the end of the day to La Pocatière, a few steps from the food bank. “You had to go look for gifts at Wal-Mart in Riviere-du-Loup, we had an evening to raise food at a hockey game, it has upset all of this that day,” says the director of Moisson Kamouraska Mireille Lizotte.

    It has completed formalities with insurance in anticipation of the repair and the rental fast of a truck. “It was discovered that it was not so well covered at the level of the insurance. There is a 2500 $ deductible and the insurance does not cover the rental of a truck,” she said. The wool socks Moisson Kamouraska, at this time of the year, is not very populated also.

    “I feel like the father Christmas in the “” rack”, she adds with a sigh. “Sometimes, there are miracles at Christmas, it’s what we hope.”

    Vehicles of volunteers

    Currently, the organization is using volunteers ‘ vehicles for the transport of foodstuffs and for food recovery from grocery stores must be done three times per week, which is far from ideal. Fortunately, the cold chill perishable foods. “It’s going to have to find a solution quickly, but also in the long term because of the aid for six RCMS of the Bas-Saint-Laurent, all year long,” she concludes.
