La DAL Collective is a grocery store managed by and for the residents of Saint-Henri West.
Saint-Henri West has been a food desert for a number of decades.
While there has been an increasing number of restaurants opening in the western part of the neighbourhood, there are few places for people to buy fresh and affordable food. With inequalities further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more residents have seen their grocery options remain inadequate.
To respond to this need, La DAL Collective opened a resident-managed food co-op on February 23rd 2022.
There, you will find:
- A wide variety of fresh produce and produce in season
- A community space where you can learn and get involved
- A collective project for our neighbourhood, built by the residents
La DAL Collective is situated on unceded Indigenous territory.
We acknowledge the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation as guardians of these lands and waters on which we live and work. Tiohtiá:ke, commonly known as Montréal, has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst First Nations, and today is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other people. We respect the continued connections with the past, present, and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within our local community.
