St-Hubert Group aiding food banks and providing meals
April 2, 2020, Laval, Que. – The St.-Hubert Group and the St-Hubert Foundation are working together to launch a comfort operation which will help support people in Quebec during the fight against COVID-19.
As a result, 10,000 St-Hubert meals delivered free of charge, 10,000 additional meals provided by network franchisees in their respective communities, as well as a $100,000 donation and nearly 2,000 chicken pies to the Food Banks of Quebec will give strength and hope to people in need in the coming weeks.
St-Hubert is joining a mutual aid and social generosity movement by launching its Deliver it Forward comfort chain. Every day, 100 St-Hubert meals will be delivered free of charge to 100 people. Via its Facebook page, St-Hubert invites its subscribers to submit as of April 2, the name of a person who deserves a St-Hubert meal. The initiative will last 100 days during which a total of 10,000 meals will be provided.
The St-Hubert Group is making a $100,000 donation to the Food Banks of Quebec. This is in addition to a $200,000 financial commitment made in 2018 to the food recovery program in supermarkets. St-Hubert is increasing its donation with nearly 2,000 chicken pies, prepared at its Boisbriand plant.
Many of the 75 St-Hubert franchisees have already donated meals to associations or hospital employees since the start of the events.
“The initiatives announced today will feed people, but above all, do them good,” said Richard Scofield, president of the St-Hubert Group. “People often tell us that St Hubert provides comfort food. It is with this in mind that we had the idea of delivering comfort to thousands of people, especially those who set themselves apart through their involvement in society.”
The St-Hubert Group serves more than 31 million meals annually and manufactures and distributes several food products, including sauces, soups, ribs, meat pies and chicken pies, under the St-Hubert brand and also under other restaurant brands of the RECIPE Unlimited Corporation.
