More Nelson restaurants for change this year

Five restaurants are participating in an event to support the Nelson Community Food Centre

Submitted by the Nelson Community Food Centre

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, five Nelson restaurants will be participating in Restaurants for Change, an event that supports the Nelson Community Food Centre and its four programs. Last year’s event featured two restaurants, this year there are five: Yum Son, Library Lounge, Louie’s Steakhouse, Outer Clove and Vault Sports Lounge.

Brad Filleul, owner of Yum Son restaurant, is keen to take part again this year. “Participating in initiatives such as Restaurants for Change ensures we are feeding the whole community not only those fortunate enough to come in and pay for a meal in our locations,” he says. “We want to make the world taste better for everyone.”

New for this year, all donated funds will stay in the community. Andrew Creighton, community relations manager for the Food Centre, is looking forward to Oct. 16: “We are really happy to have even more restaurants on board this year. It’s a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and support a great organization. We’re thankful for all the restaurants who are stepping up. It’ll be a lot of fun.”

Creighton says the program schedule is full at the Food Centre. As well as the Good Food Bank, new youth, family and adult cooking classes are about to kick off. There is also a community dinner on Thursday, Oct. 17. All this in a newly renovated, welcoming space.

Dinner at these five local restaurants will run from 5 to 11 p.m. Reservations are suggested.
