HOW A PIECE OF CHEESE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Just to recap, in our Cheese of the Month program, we select one Great Canadian Cheese, tell you a little about it and then donate 10% of the proceeds of sales of this monthly cheese to a local charitable organization.  Last year, through various initiatives, Peches & Poivre donated in the neighbourhood of $1000.00 to local causes.   Click on the photo to take you to our website and see which charity was chosen by our people’s poll, to receive proceeds of this year’s Cheese of the Month program.
