Institutions Eat Local!
September 19 to 23, 2022


This week, 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.


Your institution participated in the event?

It is now time to complete the “Activity Description” Form to tell us about the activity that was organized within your establishment. In addition to a chance to win a participation prize, the information collected will promote and enhance the actions you have organized. Contest winners will be announced in early October.
