PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE SAQ
"We are aware of the pandemic’s impacts of many Quebec citizens and are proud to support Food Banks of Quebec (FBQ). As a government corporation, it is important for us to be present to share and help support society. I am very pleased to present this contribution, the biggest in 13 years of partnership, and I thank our teams and all Quebecers for their support."
Food Banks of Quebec
A proud partner of Food Banks of Quebec (FBQ), the SAQ organizes several initiatives a year to raise funds for distribution by the FBQ to the 19 regional Moissons and nearly 1,200 community organizations across Quebec.
The generosity of our customers and involvement of our employees have enabled the SAQ to donate close to $14 million to assist numerous families across the province, including over $2,5 million in 2021.
A $1 DONATION
makes it possible to
provide three meals
A $1 donation covers the costs of transporting and storing 1.5 kg of food. As the average portion size for adults is 0.5 kg, a $1 donation is the equivalent of three meals.
