A poutine crawl is coming to Metro Vancouver very soon and it’s all for a good cause. Poutine with Purpose 2019 kicks off September 27th and runs until October 5th.

Participating restaurants whip up their own unique take on everyone’s favourite Canadian dish. This year, there are 14 incredible poutines to dig into. Bring your appetite (and stretchy pants) and try as many as you can.

Poutine With Purpose raises money for Mealshare—so not only will you be getting a delicious meal, you’ll also be doing some good. Binge eating, without the guilt. Sounds pretty great, right?
