The Marché de l’Outaouais and Moisson Outaouais have launched a crowdfunding campaign called “Together to feed the Outaouais”.
The objective of this campaign involving 11 Pontiac agricultural businesses is to encourage our local producers while supporting those in need through Moisson Outaouais. People are invited to buy gift cards on the Outaouais Market and they can then obtain baskets from local producers. Communications officer for the Outaouais Market, Audrey Demars said that the Desjardins Group has committed to contribute up to $ 25,000 if the campaign reaches $ 25,000.
The campaign is currently underway and will run until July 7. People who decide to participate can receive their basket of agricultural products in the Pontiac. 34% of the goal has been achieved so far. The MRC Pontiac is a partner in order to transmit information to municipalities, businesses and agricultural organizations.
