Pignon Bleu, with its headquarters in downtown Québec City, helps local families and children who live near or under the poverty line. It prepares nutritional snacks and meals for low-income families and schools in underprivileged neighbourhoods. Pignon Bleu also organizes socio-educational activities to help children succeed at school and support their growth. It also fosters social inclusion for people looking to enter Québec’s workforce.
