Collecting fresh fruits and vegetables: Moisson Laurentides is counting on you!
The Town of Rosemère, Moisson Laurentides and other partners are joining forces to organize, on Saturday, September 6, a collection of surplus fruits and vegetables from the gardens of the region’s residents. These staples will help increase the quantity, freshness and diversity of the food bank’s offering to less privileged families in our community.
Therefore, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, September 6, the public is invited to harvest the surplus from their vegetable gardens and place it into a community bin at the Rosemère Farmers Market, located in the parking lot of the Municipal Library at 339 Grande-Côte. Of course, the Town will be setting the example by harvesting, for this purpose, food grown in the ecological garden, which it planted nearby, in collaboration with the organization Les Verts Collectifs.
Moisson Laurentides, it may be recalled, is food bank that collects staples for distribution to more than 80 accredited local organizations such as Rosemère’s Maison Parenfant. These organizations then distribute the food to needy families in their community, in an effort to add a bit of colour and health to their plates.This is a golden opportunity for us to share our happiness with families that are not as fortunate!
