“I am so proud to be part of this event and to work alongside this amazing organization,” said Metro founder Chiko Nanji. “Food insecurity is a problem that should not exist in a country like Canada with its wealth and abundance. La Tablée des Chefs is doing more than just feeding people in need. It’s creating real awareness about why that need exists and the importance of better management of our food resources.”

La Tablée des Chefs founder, Jean-François Archambault, expressed his gratitude for the continued support of the Nanji family. “Our goal is to create change through local impact – it’s about energizing and empowering communities. Chiko understands that on a very personal level. We’re so happy to have him on our team.”
