The primary objective of Oasis is to offer an alternative in food autonomy to vulnerable families in certain municipalities of the MRC Beauce-Centre through a bi-monthly distribution counter of food baskets. We partner with Moisson Beauce to serve our customers.
The Oasis committee brings together volunteers from the municipalities joined by food aid (Saint-Séverin, Saint-Jules, Tring-Jonction, Saint-Frédéric and Saint-Victor) and ensures the proper functioning during the distribution of food baskets.
Collective kitchens are offered to the community of the MRC Beauce-Centre. These are workshops to learn how to cook healthy and at low-cost. These workshops are given in groups of eight to ten people and registration is mandatory. Each time, the participants leave with the dishes they have prepared. A cost of $15 is requested for participants.
Every week, in collaboration with the Centre d'Action Bénévole de la Beauce-Etchemin (CABBE), we prepare meals (soups, main courses, desserts) that are delivered by our partner to registrants throughout the MRC Beauce-Centre. If you are a senior or know someone who would like to register, you can contact the CABBE directly at 418-397-0135.
For families or anyone else who would like to purchase family meals, you can register via the form at the bottom of the page.
Being a parent comes with its share of daily challenges. When this role is combined with significant difficulties, such as divorce, mortality or significant health problems (to name a few), these hardships generate more difficulties in exercising this role.
This is why the respite camp services offered by Club Parentaide have the power to make a considerable difference in the lives of these parents shaken by hardships, and on their offspring for whom a respite from the family climate can only bring comfort and renewal.
Thanks to these camps, parents have the chance to benefit from a rest period and this to catch their breath. During this time, their child is cared for by a competent team of facilitators eager to leave them a positive imprint allowing the personal development of the young people through a camp experience in a safe and stimulating environment. A stay filled with beautiful adventures, encounters and enriching experiences.
At the end of 2022, the program won the award of excellence at the CISSS-CA gala in the category Improvement of the concerted offer with the community.
