The Joy of Eating Better food drive

The Food drive

Our La Guignolée food drive invites you to express your generosity by donating non-perishable food items through your local IGA.

Give a Guignolée bag from November 8 to December 31, 2018

Once again this year, your IGA retailer invites you to support a charitable organization in your region by placing non-perishable food items in the donation bin in store.

You can also opt to give with our pre-prepared $10 Guignolée bags! There are two bag assortments available in order to offer more variety to the organizations and families in need.

How does it work? Look for the display in store and then

1. PICK UP a pre-prepared bag.
2. PAY for it along with your groceries at the checkout.
3. PLACE IT in the donation bin located near the exit.

The bags contain Compliments products selected according to recommendations from Food Banks of Quebec.
