Poutine with Purpose

  • April 23, 2021 - May 1, 2021
  • Recurring daily
  • Location: Various Locations

Oh my curd, the annual food fundraiser festival Poutine With Purpose runs April 23 - May 1 in Vancouver!

We are called Poutine With Purpose because for every poutine sold during the event in any of the participating restaurants, a simple, healthy meal is provided to a local youth in need through our 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!

Every poutine sold during Poutine Week at any of the participating restaurants provides a simple, healthy meal to youth in need through our Mealshare charity partners. Poutine with purpose. Since 2013, Calgary, Vancouver and Victoria Poutine With Purpose have sold over 35,000 poutines in support of Mealshare.

No tickets are necessary, just an appetite for cheesy goodness.
