Poutine with Purpose in Vancouver

Where: Participating restaurants in Metro Vancouver listed here »
When: September 27 to October 5, 2019

It’s called Poutine With Purpose because during the event, for every poutine sold in any of the participating restaurants, a simple, healthy meal is provided to a youth in need through Mealshare charity partners.

Chefs are challenged to dream up and dish up a feature poutine for the week — from the traditional, to the creative, to the unusual. Calgary and Victoria Poutine With Purpose events have sold over 30,000 poutines since 2015.
