It’s not like anyone has ever needed an excuse to eat poutine, but luckily for us, there’s a movement to present curds a new way. The Poutine With a Purpose food festival is an event that comes to Vancouver providing another reason—besides hangovers—to have gravy and fries. For every poutine sold at a participating restaurant, a healthy meal will be donated to a child in need; the festival has been responsible for over 35,000 poutine sales since its inception in 2013. The fest runs from April 23 to May 1, and participating restaurants can be found on its website.
