À vos frigos workshops, supported by Fonds Éco IGA, are back for a fifth year in a row.
WHAT ARE THE À VOS FRIGOS WORKSHOPS?
The fifth edition of À vos frigos kicks off on October 7, 2019!
If you find yourself throwing away overly ripe fruit and vegetables and are at a loss for what to do with yesterday's leftovers, Fonds Éco IGA is proud to present À vos frigos !
Developed collaboratively with Jour de la Terre as part of Fonds Éco IGA, the À vos frigos program organizes free workshops for residents of Quebec and New Brunswick, offering them simple and practical tips so that they feel equipped to combat food waste at home and at the office.
À VOS FRIGOS WORKSHOPS IN THE OFFICE!
For this 2019–2020 edition, free workshops will be held in 200 organizations, courtesy of Fonds Éco IGA! These one-hour workshops will give employees a chance to learn tips and tricks to reduce food waste at home and at work.
This fifth edition will allow municipalities and libraries to open their doors to residents for the first time! In addition to the usual lunchtime workshops normally given to organizations, these institutions will host an evening workshop to allow as many people as possible to participate.
From November 18, 2019, to June 12, 2020, 200 organizational workshops are planned. Companies (private or public), schools, institutions, and municipalities with facilities in Quebec or New Brunswick can register for our workshops free of charge, courtesy of Fonds Éco IGA!

WHY HOLD WORKSHOPS ABOUT COMBATING FOOD WASTE ?
Food waste costs the Canadian Household over $1,100 per year. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), one third of food produced every year is not eaten. In Canada, 47% of household food goes to waste. Some studies estimate that the dollar value of these losses totals $14.6 billion per year
TAKE PART AND YOU COULD WIN ONE OF FIVE ZERO-WASTE MEALS!
Registered workshop participants could also win one of five zero-waste gourmet meals, four in the comfort of their homes, and one grand prize dinner animated by a chef from La Tablée des Chefs in the greater Montreal
