Since 2014, the Grand FoodFest has been organizing family-friendly food events throughout the province to raise funds for local causes.

A portion of the proceeds for the West Island’s first poutinefest will go to the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation.

“Our mission is to give back to the Quebec community by organizing fun, friendly events all over Quebec,” explains Maude Couillard, Director of the Grand FoodFest. “It’s important for the Grand FoodFest to give back to the cities that host the events. We’re delighted that the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation is one of the recipients this year, and we applaud its commitment to upgrading its facilities and improving the quality of care given to its patients.”

Guests will be granted free admission to the poutine frenzy with each food truck selling their take on the classic Quebec dish at different prices.
