Popular week-long poutine party floats its gravy boat across Vancouver this fall

Fill your face for a worthy cause

Poutine With Purpose is a popular week-long fundraising event that began in Calgary and has since expanded to Victoria. Now Poutine With Purpose will make its Vancouver debut this fall.

Running Sept. 27 to Oct. 5, Poutine With Purpose Vancouver offers diners the chance to eat and enjoy a poutine at any of several partner restaurants, and for every poutine sold, a healthy meal is provided to a youth in need through charity partner Mealshare.

Mealshare is the “buy a meal, give a meal” program that teams up with restaurants in multiple cities; one or more dishes on a restaurant menu is the designated Mealshare item, meaning for every one of those dishes sold, a donation is made through Mealshare to get a meal to a youth in need through local organizations.

Organizers have broken down how to participate in a few easy steps:

  • Find a poutine or restaurant that you want to try on this website
  • Eat poutine
  • Provide a meal to a youth in need
  • Talk about it #PoutineWithPurpose

Currently, Poutine With Purpose is securing restaurants for the inaugural Vancouver edition; we’ll update when those details become available.
