At Community Food Centres Canada, we know chefs and restaurants are often some of the strongest advocates in supporting fairer access to healthy, nutritious, and delicious food. That's why we were delighted to partner with Restaurants Canada as their charitable partner for their 2017 Restaurants Canada Show!
From February 25 to 27, the 2017 Restaurants Canada Show saw more than 16,000 hospitality professionals, restaurateurs and chefs learning, networking, and visiting 1000+ innovative exhibits and presentations with a focus on Canadian food unleashed in celebration of Canada150. We were excited to get a chance to participate in one of these events: our President & CEO Nick Saul talked at the Breakfast with Champions event about the importance of the food industry supporting communities through good food.
Restaurants Canada will be donating part of the proceeds from various ticketed events to CFCC, as well as allowing attendees to donate to our cause through their registration. Thanks to Restaurants Canada for supporting our work building welcoming spaces in low-income communities across Canada that bring people together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food!
