The Institutions Eat Local! event is back for a 4th edition!
Whether at your daycare, school, Cegep, university, healthcare establishment, company cafeteria or workplace, join us in celebrating local foods from September 19 to 23, 2022!
Institutions across Quebec are invited to organize events in their community to promote the importance of discovering, preparing and sampling Quebec products! Last year, more than a hundred institutions joined the movement and nearly 19,000 people took part in the event.
This event is developed by Aliments du Québec au menu – Institution (developed by Aliments du Québec and Équiterre with the support of the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec – MAPAQ) in partnership with Défi 100% local.TAKE PART IN THE EVENT

Institutions Eat Local! is an opportunity to develop closer ties with actors in the biofood sector in your region and to learn how you can improve your food procurement. The Tables de concertation bioalimentaire in various regions of Quebec (TCBQ) can help you organize your activity and put you in touch with local farmers and producers.
Don’t hesitate to contact the Table de concertation bioalimentaire in your region.
To help you organize an activity highlighting local food that is adapted to your institution’s resources and capabilities, a downloadable “Ideas Box” will soon be available on this page. It will offer several tools and ideas to help you with the organization of your event from September 19 to 23, 2022.
