Nov 9th to 16th, 2020 - Vote at Voilà contest

The GDDPC in collaboration with several partners will build in 2021 a community root cellar aiming food security for people in the rural community of Cocagne. The goal is to store the vegetables that are produced in the collective section of the community garden that serve on the menu of the Blanche-Bourgeois school and several families and individuals in need. The planned location is near Center 50 (also a disaster relief center), which is already being used as a collective kitchen for processing certain foods.
Vote for our project in the Voila contest every day between November 9 and 16, 2020, click here!
