Food and Fund Drive for the Food Depot
Studio MoFitness Mtl will be hosting an open house with the goal of raising funds and collecting food for the Food Depot of NDG. As a small business we aim to become a part of the community and help those in need around us. One way we can do this is by using our platform to host an event to raise money for a program that helps provides access to nutritious food for our vulnerable citizens. The need for nutritious food has only become greater due to the COVID-19 pandemic and many food banks and organizations are reporting unprecedented strain on their annual resources. They need help year round, so we have decided to use our Open House as an opportunity to raise money and collect food this September. We aim to hold 2 open house events per year at ‘off-season’ times in order to boost support and awareness for the Food Depot.
Throughout the day we will teach 30-minute sample classes, hold fitness-challenge competitions for prizes, kickboxing demos, and a 45-minute yoga session with Jewel Harini Lee. There will be a minimum donation 10$ to participate in the classes and you must reserve your spot ahead of time; we do not guarantee space for drop-ins. Each class will end with a challenge and the winner will receive a free class at our Studio.
The public is encouraged to drop by and chat with us outside the studio and can give monetary or food donations without participating in the class. The Food Depot does prefer monetary donations as they can buy more than we can (1$ donated=3$ of food) and they can also buy bulk fresh food. However, if you wish to donate non-perishable food items then we ask that they be as nutritious as possible (canned fish, beans, lentils, canned tomatoes, whole grains, whole grain pasta, etc…). The Food Depot does not accept non-food items. Please make sure food items are not expired and are not opened.

Between sessions we will run our fitness challenges for those who participated in the class and use the time to disinfect all equipment. Wearing a mask is mandatory except during the workout. Indoor shoes ONLY, please change once you arrive at the gym. Try to bring your own mat, water bottle and towel. Respect the social distancing rules as much as possible. Sanitize your hands upon arrival and whenever you feel it is necessary.
We will also be announcing our official opening promotion rates and you can sign up for a membership or class package with a discount the same day.
