About the project Edit

La Tablée des Chefs is a community organization founded in 2002 by chef Jean-Francois Archambault, it collects leftover food from hotels and major convention centres in Quebec to cook meals for people in need. The organization contributes chefs and cooks in three ways:

1) Recovering leftover food;
2) Preparing ready to eat meals for food
3) Transferring their culinary and nutritional knowledge onto
adolescents living in disadvantaged areas.

Since its inception, the organization has distributed more than 200,000 servings to people in need - throughout Quebec. Tablée the Chiefs has more than 35 donor members across Quebec who are willing to prepare course meals each year for the 18 food banks in Quebec.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The organization uses an innovative model and an entrepreneurial approach - by setting up a recovery system and culinary workshops that allow the organization to generate revenues which are fully allocated to further its social mission.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

La Tablée des chefs acts as the driving force behind the community involvement of chefs, cooks and Quebec bakers.
