SAQxBAQ: Let’s multiply our efforts

From May 2 to 12 help make a difference in the lives of the 500,000 people in Quebec who go hungry every month. For each bottle of rosé purchased in an SAQ store, $1 will be donated to Food Banks of Quebec.

Let’s multiply our efforts

Enjoying a glass of wine with your meal is great, but making sure you have enough food on your plate is essential. It’s important that we remember that more than 500,000 people go hungry in Québec each month, and this number just keeps rising. That’s why the SAQ has made fighting hunger its number one cause. “For the past 10 years, the SAQ has counted on its employees’ commitment to the cause, and the generosity of its customers. Each and every donation goes directly to Food Banks of Quebec (FBQ), where it is used to help feed the hungry, and purchase equipment to improve the supply chain. As a major FBQ partner, we’re counting on you again this year to help make a difference,” declares Catherine Dagenais, SAQ President and Chief Operating Officer.

The SAQ supports Food Banks of Quebec, an organization that serves our province’s 19 food banks and close to 1,200 community organizations.

An endless chain of sharing

May 2-12

The SAQ invites you to drop by one of their stores to purchase a bottle of rosé. For every bottle of rosé sold, $1 will go to FBQ. You can also support the cause by making a $1, $2, $5 or $10 donation directly at the cash register.

All year long

The SAQ supports FBQ all year long through a variety of activities and initiatives. One such initiative is donating a portion of all SAQ gift-box and gift-bag sales to Food Banks of Quebec. When you buy a gift box or bag, you’re helping the fight against hunger. In 2018-2019, the SAQ presented FBQ with $1.2-million, for a total of $5-million over the last 10 years.
