About Our Partnership

The Federation of Quebec Alzheimer’s Societies (FQAS) chose SOSCuisine as its nutrition partner to help prevent the disease and slow its progression. Indeed, a specific diet, combined with physical and mental exercises, has been shown to have a key role in slowing cognitive decline.

This partnership involves several initiatives, including the cross-promotion and recommendation of the services offered by both parties, and the participation of SOSCuisine as subject matter expert at events organized by the FQAS.

Furthermore, the agreement includes SOSCuisine’s active support during the annual Walk for Alzheimer’s*, through donated gifts and services to be won by participants at each of the 40 walks organized by the 20 regional Alzheimer’s Societies.
