From May 26 to June 12, the 307 Metro, Super C and Adonis stores in Quebec mobilized to raise $267,615 to support the activities of Food Banks of Quebec. The money collected will be used to provide food aid services to the population in each region of Quebec.

“Because food insecurity is an issue for many of our fellow citizens, Metro is proud to put its network of food stores at the service of a cause that has been close to its heart for many years,” said Marie-Claude Bacon, vice president, public affairs and communications, Metro Inc.  

From a pilot project in 2014, more than 200 Metro, Super C and Adonis stores are now participating in the Food Banks of Quebec’s Supermarket Recovery Program. In 2021 alone, stores donated no less than 3,133,000 kilograms of food that could be consumed rather than thrown away—the equivalent of 6,267,000 meals. The Supermarket Recovery Program, Metro’s flagship initiative in the fight against food waste, collects and redistributes unsold but still safe-to-eat products to some 1,200 community organizations across the province.
