In 2019, $1 from every burger sold at participating restaurants in Quebec will be donated to La Tabléedes Chefs. All the more reason to try one, or several! “We are delighted that we have the opportunity to support this organization,” said Thierry Rassam, co-founder of Le Burger Week with Cheese with his friend and business partner Na’eem Adam. “It’s an opportunity for judges and food lovers alike to help reduce food insecurity and provide education to youth across Quebec.”
