Le Creuset Helps Sow Seeds of Change
Le Creuset is proud to be the Official Cookware Partner of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC), an innovative organization that brings communities together to grow, cook, share and advocate good food.
CFCC launched in 2012 to drive the development of 15 centres across Canada over the next five years that will work to address big problems of hunger and food insecurity by offering nutritious meals, produce markets, gardening and cooking classes and education programs to communities in need. As the Official Cookware Partner, Le Creuset is proud to be outfitting all existing and future CFCC centres with its full line of cookware, bakeware, dinnerware and accessories. They will be used in community meals, kitchens and food education programs to promote cooking skills and healthy lifestyle choices to people of all ages.
In recognition of this important partnership, Le Creuset has collaborated with celebrity chef Mini Cocotte Gift Set to help generate awareness – the unique packaging creatively illustrates and reflects on the community spirit of CFCC, while bringing the inherent style of the Le Creuset brand. In addition, Food Network star chef Chuck Hughes has contributed his favourite recipes through a step-by-step recipe app “Deep Dish” included as a free bonus with each gift set, offered exclusively in the Apple App store! Le Creuset will use proceeds from the sales of the gift sets to help equip the planned 15 Community Food Centres across Canada over the next five years in its role as Official Cookware Partner.
The limited edition Mini Cocotte Gift Set, offered at a special price of $79.99 (value $120) will be available at fine kitchen stores across the country, including Le Creuset’s flagship stores in Sherway Gardens (Toronto), Carrefour Laval (Montreal) and Chinook Centre (Calgary).
