Giving Back

Access to real food. Simple cooking skills and knowledge of nutrition. The promise of a healthy meal tomorrow. These are basic necessities for every person, and the reason we established the Epicure Foundation™ in 2007.

Epicure Foundation™ Grant Program

Created to support research, education, and capacity-building projects that address key food security issues in Canada, this program awards finalists with in-kind donations and grants ranging from $2,500 to $25,000!

Stay tuned for the 2019/2020 program coming soon.

A selection committee chose ten finalists that were included in an online public vote between November 26 and December 16, 2018. This vote determined the six award recipients, who were notified and announced during the week of December 17, 2018.
