At the 2019 AGM, Caisse Desjardins des Sources members voted on which community initiatives should benefit from COOP D Project funds. A total of $12,000 was awarded.

Here are the selected projects:

Cuisine amitié de la MRC des Sources – Valorisation alimentaire des Sources 2.0 – $5,000
  • Cuisine amitié de la MRC des Sources — Valorisation alimentaire des Sources 2.0 – $5,000

This project strives to fight food waste and move towards zero waste by: transforming unsold food; recovering food approaching expiry dates; and choosing ugly produce and surplus market garden crops in our area. The organization really needs space to refrigerate large amounts of food and also to freeze cooked meals.

  • Maison des Familles FamillAction – Health brigade 2.0 – $5,000

The Health Brigade offers healthy eating and food handling workshops for children aged 3 to 12 in the RCM's daycares and schools. Kids discover new foods by handling, cooking and tasting them in fun workshops. They also learn how to properly use common kitchen tools.

  • Société de développement Saint-Georges-de-Windsor – purchase of a commercial dishwasher for the community kitchen – $2,000

With this project, the Société de développement hopes to improve kitchen efficiency at the various events and activities that take place in the community hall. Organizations use the kitchen to prepare benefit dinners, collective kitchens, etc. In the summer, kids from the summer camp cook there every week. As well, the Emergency Measures Committee uses the room and kitchen during disaster to help the people of Saint-George.

At the 2018 Annual General Meeting, Caisse Desjardins des Sources members voted on which community initiatives should benefit from COOP D Projet funds. A total of $10,000 was awarded.

The following projects were selected:

  • Cuisine amitié de la MRC des Sources - Valorisation alimentaire des Sources - $5,000

The project aims to combat food waste by using food processing to achieve zero waste.

  • Centre d'Action bénévole des Sources - Odd job services - $1,400

The project aims to establish an odd job service for people aged 65 and over and people with reduced autonomy, to help them remain in their own homes.

  • La Croisée des sentiers - Youth mental health awareness - $3,600

The project aims to develop awareness of mental health problems in youth, more specifically anxiety, among people who work directly with them.
