BC Chefs Association Honour International Chefs Day by Providing Lunch on the Downtown East Side

Lunch served at Oppenheimer Park

On Thursday, October 20, 2016 dozens of British Columbia’s chefs will celebrate International Chefs Day by serving lunch to the homeless and hungry in Oppenheimer Park from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Chef’s associations all around the world and across Canada celebrate their craft on this designated day by giving back to their communities, and coming out of their kitchens to donate their time.

The British Columbia Chefs Association encourage the public to come and join both junior and professional chefs preparing food for the less fortunate, and anyone who wishes to share a specially prepared meal to join their luncheon. Oppenheimer Park is located at 400 Powell Street in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

Chef Jeffery Young, President of the British Chefs Association, thanks the generous donations from Vancouver Community College students and faculty, the B.C. Produce Marketing Association, Sysco Vancouver, Cheemo Foods and all the other generous local suppliers who donated food and products to make this event a great success.
