Mealshare is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating youth hunger in Canada and across the globe. They have a unique approach: for each Mealshare-branded menu item purchased at their partner restaurants, they provide a meal to a young person in need.
Recently, they celebrated a significant milestone by surpassing 2.7 million meals provided!
Their efforts to fight youth hunger continue year-round, as this issue doesn’t take a break. However, once a year, they have a special event called “Tonight for Tomorrow” to amplify their impact even further.
With an array of fantastic restaurants to choose from, we want to make things easier for you. Here’s a breakdown of some participating restaurants:
The Greek by Anatoli
Anatoli Souvlaki has been serving delightful Greek cuisine since 1984, with locations in Gastown, Yaletown, and their original spot in North Vancouver. The range of options is both extensive and scrumptious!
From souvlaki and moussaka to calamari and haloumi, they offer a blend of traditional favorites and creative modern takes on Greek dishes. Their menu is presented Mezze style, which means the dishes are brought out as soon as they’re ready and are meant to be shared by all at the table.
Jamjar is a wonderful place to indulge in delicious and wholesome Lebanese cuisine. Whether you come with a friend or a larger group, you can enjoy a variety of dishes together.
A definite highlight is their hummus trio which features their classic hummus along with a rotation of seasonal variations. Beyond that, the choice is yours!
They also offer an abundance of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, making it a destination where everyone can relish the meal together. And remember to try the Makali – deep-fried cauliflower tossed in pomegranate molasses. It’s a cauliflower experience like no other!
