What’s new


One more bite

Thanks to our store food recovery program One More Bite, food that would otherwise have been thrown out or composted, but is still good to eat, is now being recovered by regional food bank outlets in Quebec and various community organizations in Ontario. Unsold products such as meat, prepared dishes, dairy and bakery products are saved and then redistributed to local organizations, who cook the products and then offer meals to those in need.
