Safeway partners with Ricardo

Launches Annual Campaign in support of The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation

Canada Safeway is pleased to partner with Food Network celebrity Chef Ricardo to launch Safeway’s annual October fundraising campaign in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF).

This unique partnership was inspired by Safeway’s longstanding relationship with CBCF and Ricardo’s personal connection to the cause, as his wife is a Breast Cancer survivor. During the campaign, Canada Safeway customers are invited to make a donation at the check stand when shopping at their local Safeway. When a donation of $2.00 is made, customers receive a limited edition “Eating Well” booklet featuring recipes from Ricardo or a coupon for Safeway products including the new Open Nature Ice Cream and Salad Dressing. Ricardo and Safeway have also dedicated 10% of the sales of the Ricardo cookware line to CBCF during the month of October.

Over $8 million has been raised for CBCF by Canada Safeway during the past nine years that has helped to create research projects that are bringing treatments to patients more quickly and efficiently. The funds are also used to bolster one of the most critical aspects of breast cancer treatment – early detection.

“Medical science in the fight against breast cancer has come a long way in the past decade. We’re glad that we could be a part of the evolution and honoured that our efforts have helped save lives,” saidChuck Mulvenna, President and Chief Operating Officer for Canada Safeway. “The encouraging research results and the utilization of services to aid in early detection are proof of the power of partnerships between businesses and medical science.”

Safeway employees are known for their enthusiasm and support which make all of this possible. During the campaign, stores and employees are decked out in pink decoration and attire. Employees often volunteer their time, plan special events in the community and utilize their talents to raise money for the cause.

Safeway’s Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser is the second of two annual cancer campaigns. Each June Safeway raises money to combat prostate cancer, one of the most prevalent forms of cancer in men. To date, the company has raised more than $15 million for cancer causes. Canada Safeway also contributes to a broad range of charitable and community programs and in 2010 donated more than $24 million to hunger relief, health and human services and programs focused on assisting people with disabilities.

The13th annual SHROVE Pannekoek TUESDAY is proudly sponsored by English Bay Blending.

Shrove Tuesday is a time of universal feasting, fun and celebration. Celebrated annually all over the world, it is also known as Mardi Gras (“fat Tuesday” in French), Carnival (from the Latin “farewell to the flesh”) and Fastnacht (the Germanic “night of the fast”).  But it also has a more popular name – Pancake Tuesday.  The English community celebrates this day by preparing pancakes, traditionally to enable households to use up rich ingredients like butter and eggs before the Lenten fast.  It is the natural time of year for De Dutch, whose signature dish is the Pannekoek – a Dutch-style pancake – to celebrate and give back to the community. 

pan_ne_koek (pãn-ne-kõõk), n. genuine Dutch pancake, tasting similar to the traditional North American pancake and is slightly thicker than a crepe. It has a circumference of 37″, a diameter of 12″ and if you cut it into square inch pieces you will enjoy 113 bites. Simply delightful any way you like, but the customary way is to roll it up and cut off bite-size pieces. Served in over 50 combinations of both sweet and savoury mouth-watering ingredients, Pannekoeken are guaranteed to satisfy every type of craving!

The thirty-five year old De Dutch franchise with 18 locations in BC’s Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, Okanagan, and Cariboo has successfully carved a niche in the competitive food service industry. While offering dinner at its Strawberry Hill location, De Dutch Pannekoek House specializes in breakfast, brunch and lunch, offering their customers a unique blend of European ethnicity in its menu items.  The Pannekoek, a 12″ in diameter Dutch-style pancake, is their signature dish and continues to draw loyal customers.  www.dedutch.com
