(Ottawa) – In light of the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, the Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC) is urging the Armenian-Canadian community to make donations to La Tablée des Chefs project “Les Cuisines Solidaires”– which will provide 1.5 million meals to food banks across Canada with the help of different partners, in memory of the 1.5 million innocent victims of the Armenian Genocide. All tax deductible donations can be made online at : www.tableedeschefs.org
“We are proud of our partnership with this great organization and we strongly believe that as the Armenian-Canadian community is preparing to mark the 105th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide under the current difficult circumstances, it is our duty to help our fellow Canadians who are most in need, in honour of our 1.5 million victims”
– Hrag Tarakdjian and Shahen Mirakian, co-presidents of the ANCC
“We are proud to partner with the ANCC and the Armenian community across Canada, in order to mark the 105th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Seeing the serious impacts of the crisis in our communities, we looked for a way to help people and imagine a great implication of leaders and actors of the agrifood sector. The response to our call was immediate: in less than a week, we mobilized generous public and private partners, received confirmations from chefs across the province and the support of many stakeholders in the agrifood industry!”
– Jean-François Archambault, Managing Director and Founder of La Tablée des Chefs
