Once a month, in 5 senior residences of the neighbourhood, our team offers a home-made lunch to create a welcoming space for socializing around a delicious meal. We also offer low-cost food items for purchase, to facilitate access to good food for seniors. In addition to this, Les Cafés Poivre & Sel are an opportunity for local actors to meet seniors in their homes and share information on a variety of topics, such as health services, osteoporosis, fraud and alphabetization, to name a few. These monthly meetings stimulated a strong engagement from the participants, including for promotion, merchandising, setting up the dining area, and even cooking up meals!
The activity was temporarily suspended, as we are waiting for a new grant. In the meantime, residents have mobilized and signed a petition for the return of this popular activity!
