Restaurants for change – When dining out will help others


Dining out is, of course, one of the great pleasures we can enjoy, especially in Montreal, a city well-known for high-quality gastronomical offers. But on Wednesday, October 19 dining out could also provide another satisfaction: the possibility of helping, at least in part, some of those in our community who are less fortunate and who face difficulties in bringing food to their table.


imgres-2On October 19, more than 65 restaurants in 15 cities across Canada will join forces and donate the proceeds of that night to various food programs in low-income communities. In the case of Montreal, the proceeds will go to NDG Food Depot / Dépot alimentaire NDG, and Community Food Centres Canada.

Old Montreal, specialty: seafood), and Park (378 Victoria Ave., Westmount, specialty: Thai, Japanese cuisine, seafood).

A statement on the organizers’ website explains: “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.”
