The Fondation Tirelire was founded in 2004 thanks to the generosity of Québec's pork producers. Intent on taking on the role of involved citizens and contributing to the well-being of their community, Québec's pork producers created the first foundation in the field of agriculture to fight against food insecurity in Québec.
Food is a part of everyday life for all humans and it has a great influence on our quality of life. The Fondation Tirelire would like to end hunger in Québec by supporting organizations that allow families and individuals in need to improve their living conditions while respecting their dignity.
From its beginnings, the Fondation Tirelire has expanded at every level. They have developed a structure, mechanism and financial activities with the goal of helping as many people in need as possible in the most effective way.
