About the Event

How it works: It’s easy! You make a dinner reservation at a participating restaurant on Oct. 17, 2018, and go out to eat that night. The restaurant will donate from 50% to 100% of total food sales from dinner service to support community food programs in low-income neighbourhoods. Voilà! That’s how you dine out to do good.

Restaurants for Change is an annual fundraising event that brings together some of Canada’s best restaurants to raise money in support of community food programs across Canada.  Since 2014, Restaurants for Change has raised over $700,000 for empowering programs that provide access to healthy food, and build better health, skills, and belonging. Make your dinner reservation today and make a difference in the lives of Canadians who are struggling with food insecurity and poverty.

Who Benefits

We have complex, joined-up food issues in Canada: growing household food insecurity, high rates of diet-related illness, social disconnection, and an unsustainable food system. These issues disproportionately affect people living on low incomes, and have huge social, economic, environmental and health-related costs. We need to act now, before the problem gets any worse.

Chefs and restaurants are incredible allies in the fight for a fairer and healthier food system. This year’s participating Restaurants for Change are committed to supporting local food systems, local producers, and the right to good food for all. These generous food fighters know that we all have a role to play in changing our food system for the better.

And so do you! Dine out to do good during Restaurants for Change on October 17, 2018, and funds raised will support food programs that build health, belonging, and social justice in low-income communities across Canada. In cities where there is a Community Food Centre (see below for the list), proceeds are shared between that centre and Community Food Centres Canada. Other funds raised help CFCC support more than 140 Good Food Organizations across Canada to offer empowering food programs in their communities.

Since 2014, Restaurants for Change has raised  more than $700,000 to support local community food programs  and a national movement for good food for all. We need your help to continue this success!

To find out more about how we’re bringing people together to build health, belonging, and social justice, read our 2017 Annual Report or visit cfccanada.ca.
