From Gourmet Warehouse official event page:
“Join us Thursday April 7th, 2016 at 6:30pm for an evening of food, wine, and chocolate, and help us feed the children in our neighbourhood. The Chocolate Challenge pits 8 of Vancouver’s best chocolatiers against each other in a competition to create the best original chocolate. As our guest, you will sample and vote on your favourite creation.
100% of ticket sales, silent and live auction proceeds will be to the Strathcona Backpack Program and Project Chef.
The Strathcona Backpack program strives to ensure that local children have access to nutritious food on the weekends, in addition to weekday meals provided by the school funded food program. Every Friday, children pick up a backpack of foods to fill the hunger gap of the weekend. The Backpack program now feeds over 275 children weekly.
Project Chef is a school program geared towards children in Kindergarten to Grade 7. It aims to teach children about healthy food choices and enables them to make nutritious meals for themselves.”
