Bols du Quartier – Community Meals for All

This summer, we hosted a special edition of: Bols du Quartier *Around-the-World!* For 5 weeks in July, August and September 2021, 5 community members each presented a menu featuring their culture of origin. Watch the videos presenting the Guest Chefs here!

Bols du Quartier is an outdoor community meal offered on Fridays from 12 to 1 pm on Dufresne Street, between De Rouen and Larivière during the summer season and when the weather permits (in case of rain, you’ll find us on the square at the Marché Solidaire Frontenac!). You’ll be greeted with a bowl full of healthy food that you can eat while chatting with your neighbors. The meal is free with the option to make a voluntary contribution.

Why Bols du Quartier?

This program aims:

  • To allow people in financially precarious situations to take a break and enjoy a delicious meal;
  • To create a moment of exchange where we can build connections between neighbors;
  • Provide an opportunity for those who want to volunteer in the kitchen to prepare the meals.
