Longueuil, July 27, 2015 – From August 13 to September 9, Quebecers will receive a copy of Moi, je fais mon lunch magazine when they make a $4 donation at the checkout of their local IGA. Presented by IGA in collaboration with Aliments du Québec, toujours le bon choix!, this fundraising campaign helps support La Tablée des Chefs’ mission to help feed people in need and develop culinary education for young people in Quebec.
Money raised from the Moi, je fais mon lunch campaign will allow over 1,000 young people to benefit from culinary training provided by La Tablée des Chefs. Les Brigades Culinaires will be offered as an after-school program in 60 secondary schools starting in September, so teens can take part in 24 practical and theoretical workshops along with several challenges that lead to the Iron Chef grand finale at the end of the year. Over the upcoming school year, they will hone their culinary skills and food knowledge so they can develop food self-sufficiency.
$4 well invested
Spokesperson for La Tablée des Chefs, Ricardo Larrivée, along with collaborators Stefano Faita, Josée Di Stasio, Christian Bégin, Geneviève O’Gleman, and Alexandra Diaz have created delicious lunch recipes especially for the campaign magazine.
