ST-HYACINTHE, Que. — Olymel L.P. made two $10,000 donations today — one to Moisson Montréal — accepted by the organization’s executive director, Richard D. Daneau — and the other to La Tablée des Chefs, which was accepted by company CEO and founder, Jean-François Archambault.
As the company approaches its 25th anniversary this year, Olymel is making some structural changes to its corporate donations policy by further embracing its “feeding-the-world” initiative; all Olymel corporate donations will now be categorized under Operation Feeding the World Together. The types of donations will vary between monetary contributions, food donations, transfer of knowledge and expertise or volunteer work. Through this all-encompassing program, Olymel aims to support Canadian food banks, with a special emphasis on the four provinces in which the company operates.
“I am proud to announce a concrete gesture today, with two grants of $10,000 each to Moisson Montréal and La Tablée des Chefs,” says Réjean Nadeau, president and CEO of Olymel. “These organizations and the many volunteers who work with them play a central, indispensable role for families and individuals in difficulty. As the holiday season approaches, I am confident Olymel’s contribution to these two organizations will be used to meet an ever-growing need. I am also pleased that all Olymel executives will be more involved in implementing Operation Feeding the World Together in the coming years, so we can continue supporting communities with effective, concrete initiatives, as we have been doing for 25 years.”
