When Good Eats Are Good Deeds

Y’all know I love to indulge in a great meal out from time to time. Treating myself to the experience of enjoying delicious food and drink in a social atmosphere with friends has got to be one of my favourite guilty pleasures. For the next 7 days? Eating out in Halifax and Dartmouth actually benefits a fantastic cause thanks to Yelp! So get out for a meal or two or seven and enjoy it guilt-free. Here’s how: from September 23 – 29, dine at any of seven participating restaurants and drop your receipt in the official Yelp Eats box. For each receipt over $30 (before tax and tip), these restaurants will donate $10 to Feed Nova Scotia. All the details, including the list of participating restaurants are available here. You can even join Yelpers for group outings to the participating restaurants throughout the week. I can’t wait to check out Saege Bistro tonight.

Did you know Yelp Canada raised over $10,000 for local hunger relief organizations across the country last year? I am so lucky to be able to afford to eat out from time to time, especially when so many people in our city don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Events like this make me so happy and proud to be part of the Yelp community here in Halifax. All the participating restaurants deserve huge kudos for donating a big chunk of their bottom line this week. Just one more reason I love our city.
