Ever since the very first edition of the Festipâtes, Plaisirs Gastronomiques has graciously offered its delicious pot pies to the guests of the Basses-Laurentides region during this October annual event.
Festipâtes is an initiative of Collège Lionel-Groulx, and its Foundation’s mission is to support the students by celebrating their determination and their excellence and to fund the Collège’s academic projects.
On October 21 and 22, the Fondation du Collège Lionel-Groulx held its 11th year fundraising event, the Festipâtes.
"Before the pandemic, this event was held in person. With the pandemic, we had to reinvent ourselves and that is why delivered 1000 lunch boxes, to businesses, students and community organizations. Several businesses in the greater region are buying boxes and are giving them to community organizations, a nice gesture in these difficult times for families." Explains Jocelyne Roch
This initiative was supported, among others, by Plaisirs Gastronomiques, a proud collaborator of the Foundation for several years.
The Festipâtes is presented by BMO and other major local businesses, and this year marked the 10th edition of this beloved gathering. In the spirit of solidarity, who central value of the project, all leftover food is given to Moisson Laurentides.
