The RCCQ has three membership categories: regular members, affiliate members, and honorary members.

1 Regular Members

o Collective Kitchen Groups

You can participate in and help promote a food autonomy vision by joining a collective kitchen group. This is a small group of people who pool their time, money and skills together to make affordable, healthy and appetizing meals that they take home. They do this in four stages: planning, shopping, cooking and evaluation. The group must adhere to the principles and policies (Base d’unité politique) of the Regroupement des cuisines collective du Québec (RCCQ) as well as its mission and values.

o Collective Kitchen Organizations

By collective kitchen organizations, we mean any community organization whose main activity is developing and supporting collective kitchen groups. To be part of the RCCQ network, such organizations must also adhere to the principles and policies (Base d’unité politique) of the RCCQ as well as its mission and values.

o Service Organizations with a Collective Kitchen Component

By service organizations with a collective kitchen component, we mean any community organization that supports collective kitchen groups within the framework of its activities. To be part of the RCCQ network, such organizations must adhere to the principles and policies (Base d’unité politique) of the RCCQ as well as its mission and values.

2 Affiliate Members By affiliate member, we mean any other organization, company or person that supports the mission, values and objectives of the RCCQ. There is no collective kitchen group.

3 Honorary Members The Board of Directors of the RCCQ may appoint, by resolution, as honorary members, any person or organization that has supported the RCCQ in the form of service or donations and which expresses support for the objectives of the RCCQ.
