St-Hubert begins food bank initiative
Quebec restaurant chain The St-Hubert Group and the St-Hubert Foundation have begun an initiative in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of this effort, the organizations will donate $100,000 to Food Banks of Quebec and deliver 20,000 free meals to local consumers in need. Beginning April 2, the company will invite Facebook users to submit the name of someone deserving a meal. One hundred meal will be delivered daily over a period of 100 days.
“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. Our franchisees, people involved in their community, quickly joined the movement. This outpouring of generosity comes from our retail division, our restauration division and the St-Hubert Foundation who join together as never before to comfort Quebeckers in this unprecedented situation.”
