Putting an end to hunger
Having a glass of wine with dinner is great, but having food on your plate is essential. More than 400,000 people go hungry in Quebec each month, 150,000 of whom are children. That’s why the SAQ has made fighting hunger its number one humanitarian cause. “At the SAQ, we love sharing our advice and passion for wine,” says Catherine Dagenais, Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer. “Another way of sharing is by giving back to the community. So, we’re inviting our customers to join us in the fight against hunger by making sure all Quebecers get enough to eat.”
SAQ has been supporting Food Banks of Quebec, an organization that serves our province’s 19 food banks and close to 1,200 community organizations. The spirit of sharing is also about lending a hand to those in need.
