Food solidarity: a necessity for a more human, resilient and healthy society

Local food solidarity is a network of mutual aid and actions to promote local human and food resources. It is the appropriation of our individual and collective power to reduce food waste and facilitate greater food security.

Citizens get involved in agriculture projects. The collections are distributed among participating citizens, to partner food banks, and to La Place Commune for free distribution in the community fridge and for processing in our kitchens.

Discover all the agricultural projects

Le garde-manger du monde

In the café, you will find our “Garde-Manger du Monde”: a fridge and a bread box regularly filled with surplus or end-of-line products, offered free of charge to residents of the neighborhood.

Do you want to offer a coffee or a meal to a stranger? Pay in advance and a passing neighbor will love it !

Partnership in our kitchen for 2021

We are very proud to collaborate with the organization SINGA Quebec a second time for the “Un Rêve Dans Votre Assiette” project.

SINGA Quebec is part of an international citizen movement aimed at creating bridges of exchange and meeting between newcomers and the host society.

“A dream in your plate” is a community catering project whose Chiefs are women with an atypical migratory past. By going to meet these women, Montreal will then be able to discover not only their cultures, their culinary heritage and their histories, but also to participate in a collective project which aims to deconstruct the prejudices that we carry towards people from the immigration.
