Groceries at reduced prices: Magasins-Partage at the Cap St-Barnabé

For 10% of the food’s real value

By Raymond Viger 

Do you know about the Magasins-Partage project? On the island of Montréal, around 20 districts are offering a place to get food. Journalist and actress Isabelle Maréchal is the patron of this group of projects, and singer Martine St-Clair is a spokesperson for the group.

The principle is to offer some families in need in each neighborhood to get groceries by paying a symbolic contribution of 10% towards the cost of these groceries.

For the Cap St-Barnabé community organization, which fights poverty in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, they’re bringing groceries to 800 families in need on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Our own Bistro le Ste-Cath has made several presentations of our food to a salivating, adoring public. That’s why, with 12 other Hochelaga-Maisonneuve restaurateurs, Bistro  le Ste-Cath has found itself in Morgan Park, the Botanical Gardens, in Place Valois… to present its gastronomic gifts to citizens of this neighborhood.

But the Bistro le Ste-Cath cannot remain indifferent to Cap St-Barnabé’s Magasins-Partage efforts. For every bite the Bistro le Ste-Cath sells, two bites will be given to families who use the Magasins-Partage’s services.

Because gastronomy and the culinary arts should be accessible to everyone. Bistro le Ste-Cath, a socially engaged bistro close to its community.
