The Projet COOP D program

Due to COVID-19 and to limit the risk of spreading the virus, Desjardins Group asked its caisses to postpone their annual general meetings.

In January 2020, Caisse Desjardins des Sources invited all non-profit organizations, that are caisse members and located on its territory, to submit a project as part of Projet COOP D. Selected initiatives had to be presented to and voted on by members at the annual general meeting.

To be selected, projects had to be related to education, health and healthy lifestyles, humanitarian work and community services, or economic development.

For a limited time, Caisse Desjardins des Sources members can exercise their right to vote and help determine how the total of $12,000 will be allocated to the 6 projects, for a maximum of $3,000 per project.

2019 annual general meeting

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.
