COVID-19 - METRO donates $ 1 million to the community

METRO will donate $ 1 million to support community rescue operations in the context of the current pandemic, which will be $ 500,000 to Food Banks of Quebec and Feed Ontario, as well as $ 500,000 to the Centraide emergency fund / United Way.

Aware of the public’s concerns about COVID-19 and its impact on everyone’s life, METRO is responding to the call of its long-standing community partners. This donation will help meet the growing need for food aid and other essential services such as seniors' assistance or mental health support.

METRO, through its network of food stores and pharmacies, has been at the forefront of providing essential service since the start of the crisis. Our priority has been to ensure the safety of our employees and our customers so that we can continue to meet their needs.

This donation is in addition to METRO's continued support for these organizations, including a donation of $ 500,000 to the major fundraising campaign of Banques Alimentaires du Québec, which is co-chaired by Eric La Flèche, President and Chief Executive Officer from METRO. METRO is also a partner in the early days of the Food Bank Supermarket Recovery Programs in Quebec and Feed Ontario.
