Charitable dining initiative Feeding YYC is back in action for another round of fundraising. From May 4 to 17, food orders placed with its partner restaurants also directs food to hungry Calgarians in need — something it’s dubbed “Buy One Give One.”

Current partner restaurants and businesses include The EmbarcaderoForeign ConceptMarketMaruju SushiMurrieta’s Bar & GrillPure Kitchen & Bar, Roy’s Korean Kitchen and Spirits With Smoke. Each is offering a special multi-course dinner/kit at competitive prices — Foreign Concept’s three-course meal is $35 per person, while Roy’s Korean Kitchen (a pop-up by the Anju chef) offers a family-style spread that feeds four for $175.

This run follows Feeding YYC’s initial goal to feed 50 families over Easter weekend. It exceeded that goal and fed 275 people within 66 different families. Beyond ordering with restaurants, you can contribute to Feeding YYC’s current goal of feeding 200 families this month by donating directly to a GoFundMe campaign.

Feeding YYC is the brainchild of local entrepreneur Eric Yeung and is supported by numerous partners. Families in need are identified by BB4CK, Inn From The ColdCentre for Newcomers, the Ronald McDonald House Calgary Chapter and through a tip line.
