Dine out for a cause. Vancouver’s 23rd annual Dining Out For Life fundraiser is taking place on Thursday, March 30, 2017.
On that day, Dining Out For Life participating restaurants from Whistler to White Rock and across the Lower Mainland will donate 25% of their food sales in support of local men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Over the past 23 years, Dining Out For Life has raised over $3 million, with proceeds directly benefiting the programs and services provided free-of-charge by registered not-for-profit A Loving Spoonful. These include:
- An average of 100,000 meals per year delivered to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Metro Vancouver, with more than 70% of the families on the service headed by a single mother
- Wellness Program nutritional counselling and meal planning
- People helped through the charities’ programs are often affected by multiple and co-existing illnesses such as cancer, hepatitis C, heart disease and mental illness
There are over 35 participating restaurants, including: Adesso (West End), Charlies Little Italian (Main St.), Forage (Downtown Vancouver), Joe Fortes (Downtown Vancouver), Nook (Kitsilano), The Union (Chinatown), and Wildebeest (Gastown).
