Canada Beef has launched its Burger it Forward program which puts great burgers into your belly and dollars into local food banks.
Eat a Burger, Bank a Meal and Feast On®
During the month of February, you can feel good every time you eat a burger! From now until February 28th, Canada Beef will donate the equivalent of one meal to Food Banks Canada with each featured burger purchased from a participating restaurant.
This campaign is running across six regions: Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Irving Big Stop Restaurants nationwide and of course, Ontario.
The extra cool part? In Ontario, the map features 41 restaurants and not one, not two but THIRTEEN of them are Feast On® certified.
Shall we take a look?
Southeastern Ontario Burgers
Southeastern Ontario is represented strongly on the map with four Feast On® restaurants- three in Kingston and 1 in Picton.
In Kingston, Otter Creek Kitchen, who are known for their epic burgers are serving up a blue cheese bacon burger (drool) and the Wharf and Feather have their signature burger that features locally-raised beef, Swiss cheese, smoky chipotle mayo, caramelized onion jam, bacon, greenhouse tomato, fresh lettuce and a pickle spear…YUM.
Not in the mood for beef? Hit up AquaTerra right on the water for a Hoison Pork Belly Burger that will make you howl in delight.
Just down the road in Picton, the folks at Waring House are showcasing their County Burger topped with Canadian cheddar, maple syrup and more all on a brioche bun.
In the Kitchener-Guelph area, the Neighbourhood Group’s band of merry restaurants is getting in on the fun.
The Wooly Pub will be serving a blended burger of beef from Y U Ranch and lentils whereas Park Eatery will have beef from VG Meats blended with pork belly for an extra flavourful spin.
With a location in Guelph and Kitchener, Borealis Grille & Bar is serving up their burgs with roasted garlic aioli on a toasted bun. We recommend ordering some asparagus nachos with that but only if you want your life changed.
Of course- we didn’t forget the rest of our Feast On® partners participating across the province! It’s time for a rapid-fire of delicious burgers you don’t want to miss!
- Radical Gardens in Timmins is turning out a 5oz Northern Ontario beef patty, house-made bacon birch syrup (bacon birch syrup!!!!), pepperoncini and sweet pickle relish, Swiss cheese, fresh Ontario goat cheese, red onion and dijonnaise served on a toasted bun. COMMON. That’ll keep ya warm this winter.
- Bruce Wine Bar in Grey County has put their Bruce Burger on special. We’re talkin’ a grass-fed Canadian beef patty, house aioli, pickled onions, yellow mustard, Thornloe cheddar and arugula. Yes, please.
- Publican House is putting the smash burger front and centre with a classic smash burger beef patty, smoked Otonabee bacon, wood-fired Kendal Hills mushrooms, caramelized onions, Swiss cheese and horseradish aioli on a Fine Food’s onion bun. We’re positive they have some house-made craft brews to wash that down with too!
- Heatherlea Farm Café is giving fans a burger right from the source: a 7oz patty made with their own beef and topped with cheddar, mayo, onion jam, lettuce, tomato and pickled onion all on a brioche bun!
- Clocktower Bistro is serving up their burger all on a homemade pretzel Keiser that has us saying “ohhhh yea” in a really deep voice. They’re topping it with Ontario peameal bacon, Pine River aged white cheddar, lettuce, tomato and onion.
