TORONTO, October 13, 2021 – This fall, Metro Supply Chain will fulfill and deliver gift baskets containing regional culinary and handmade treats across Canada in support of Tablée des Chefs’ Solidarity Baskets program – one of many initiatives the charity runs to build food security in Canadian communities.

Based in Quebec, La Tablée des Chefs has been teaching youth culinary skills and feeding those in need for 19 years. During this time, the charity has educated 35,000 young people and distributed 7 million cooked meals.

“We’re proud to continue to help La Tablée des Chefs drive such incredible social impact as its logistics and transportation partner for The Solidarity Basket” said Metro Supply Chain founder and CEO Chiko Nanji. “The charity is helping to feed those in need today and is also working tirelessly to educate our youth, so they have the skills to develop food autonomy in the future.”

Each gourmet Solidarity Basket features unique handmade treats and culinary delights curated by top chefs from across Canada to highlight regional delicacies. Baskets will be sold for $100 in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba starting on October 13th, 2021. The profits from this initiative will be used to support La Tablée des Chefs’ programs.

“Giving back to our communities is a longstanding and important part of Metro Supply Chain’s culture and we’re honoured to be able to use our extensive experience and Canada-wide last mile network to help La Tablée des Chefs feed those in need,” says John Fahidy, Vice-President of Transport for Metro Supply Chain.
