Testimonials

  • “My husband and I just immigrated to Québec, and I just learned that I’m pregnant. We don’t have jobs right now, and I’m afraid the little money we have will mean I won’t be able to eat enough for my baby. I’m going to apply for the Olo program.”
  • “What a surprise! I already have two beautiful children, but I wasn’t expecting to have a third so soon! I’m a bit worried since I already find it hard to feed my little family properly; the food budget is pretty tight. I’m going to apply for the Olo program.”
  • “It wasn’t easy to find out I was pregnant at 16, but I decided to face up to the situation. My parents will be able to help me a little, but I don’t have a lot of money and I’m going to have to find a place to live. I want to do what’s best for my baby, so I’m going to apply for the Olo program.”
  • “My first baby was premature. I was told it was because I didn’t gain enough weight. I just found out I’m pregnant again, and I’d like to eat better to have a healthy baby. I’m going to apply for the Olo program to receive coupons and have a nutritional follow-up.”
