SoSIAL Program

Fight against food wastage

SoSIAL is a dedicated initiative aimed at combating food waste and assisting those in need. Through this program, all food products are collected and securely stored at the conclusion of the event, and then distributed locally to various centers that support individuals in need. Year after year, SIAL Canada collaborates in partnership with Moisson Montréal and Daily Bread Food Bank to make a meaningful impact.

For each registration to our 2024 show, SIAL Canada will donate 5$ to Moisson Montréal to fight against food wastage.
