Poutine with a Purpose

Poutine With Purpose is an annual food fundraiser festival in Calgary, Victoria and Vancouver and new this year – Hamilton! Chefs are challenged to dream up and dish up a feature poutine for the week — from the traditional, to the creative, to the unusual!

Poutine With Purpose is the one week of the year you can eat poutine guilt free! Why? Every poutine sold during Poutine With Purpose in participating restaurants provides a simple, healthy meal to a youth in need through Mealshare charity partners.

How does Poutine With Purpose work?

  1. Find a poutine or restaurant that you want to try on the event website
  2. Eat poutine
  3. You just helped to provide a healthy meal to a youth in need

Dates: April 23 - May 1, 2021  Tickets: No tickets are required or free to attend Check website for participating restaurants
