In connection with the approach of Mother’s Day, we plan to pamper our loved ones and, above all, gather for delicious food to celebrate together. Some will use the crab season to taste refreshing white wine, while others will open a bottle of bubbles around a gourmet brunch!
Unfortunately, this year many will not have the funds to organize a holiday meal. More than 600,000 Quebecers turn to Quebec’s food banks every month, and the number of requests has doubled since the pandemic and inflation. That’s why from May 5 to 11, SAQ is committed to donating food to Quebec’s food banks for every Quebec product purchased in stores or online. It will also be possible to make a donation directly at the box office.
This initiative will not only allow consumers to discover delicious local products, but will also allow Food Banks of Quebec members to provide more food to those who need it. Look for Origine Québec, Prepared in Québec, and Bottled in Québec IDs in stores or online.
Let’s bake locals this month with these suggestions for every taste!
