Satisfy your sweet tooth safely
Last year in March, Québec’s sugar shacks were getting ready to kick off yet another fantastic sugar season. Maple syrup was running like water. Tables were set, and fridges were crammed to bursting. And the rest is history: COVID-19 put a stop to all that. For sugar shack owners, the season cancellation meant the loss of up to 95 % of their annual income.
This year, no one was ready to kiss another season goodbye. The sugar shacks that have joined this initiative are determined to satisfy your sweet tooth safely. Be assured that the artisans who create your home-sweet-home kit are fully committed to following the health guidelines in effect—to the letter.
Here’s an overview of what’s been put in place to make sure you’re safe:
- Online payment
- Touchless in-car pickup with sugar-shack pickup
- Optional pickup at a Metro grocery store near you to avoid travelling from one region to another
- Face masking and frequent handwashing by all workers at participating sugar shacks
“Everyone at the participating sugar shacks, including me, hopes that our home-sweet-home kits will be a comfort and source of happiness. We can hardly wait to welcome you back. Until then, take care of yourself and feast with your families!” Stéphanie Laurin, Chair of the Association of Québec Sugar Shacks and co-owner of Chalet des érables
