Poutine with Purpose started in 2010 as a one-day poutine crawl in Calgary created as a fun social media experiment by MRU instructor Karen Richards. The poutine passion grew into Calgary Poutine Week, and over time, has evolved into an annual food festival frenzy in Calgary, Victoria and in 2019 they launched in Vancouver. Poutine With Purpose events have sold over 35,000 poutines since 2013. Follow along on Facebook for updates.
