BC Place Menu Update

BC Place and BC Lions Announce Enhanced Food and Beverage Concepts for 2016

Truth be told I’ve not been to many football games, but I was game when I was invited down to sample some new menu items from Chef William Tse and his team and check out the new craft beers now available.

BC Place
The impressive “Beast of Fire” kitchen featuring a rotating selection of butchery-style roasts that are carved-to-order. We sampled prime rib. I also learned that someone had made off with a prime rib, the whole roast, at one of last year’s games. I just sampled a bite, but was tempted to grab and go!

Fans can also enjoy a super-huge “Big Event” Triple-Patty Burger that includes 6 strips of Applewood-smoked bacon (I didn’t get through much of this!), Fish Tacos (my favourite), a Foot Long Hotdog, Foot Long sausage with house made chili, and Sriracha Chicken Poutine and more.

A Better Life Foundation

Founded in 2012 by Mark Brand, ‘A Better Life Foundation’ (ABLF) strives to support people in need. The overarching goal of the Foundation is to raise critical funds towards providing food security to women, children, and those in assisted living as well as provide job training and employment opportunities for the community at large. By looking for and working towards sustainable solutions, ABLF aims to contribute towards meaningful change.

In its first two years, the objectives of the Foundation are two-fold. Firstly, to relieve poverty by providing nutritious meals to those in need and secondly, to relieve poverty by providing job skills, training opportunities and job placement assistance for those with barriers to traditional employment. The foundation has had great success to date with both of these initiatives, working with multiple partners – from developmental disability to addiction service agencies.

ABLF plans to run a food program providing one nutritious meal daily to residents of Single Residency Occupancy hotels and assisted living buildings in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES). The vision for 2013 is to increase service for over 1500 individuals living in various housing societies and organizations. In addition, ABLF will work towards sponsoring multiple community kitchens and cooking classes. Community kitchens help to create a social outlet and skill-building environment while teaching residents how to access food sources and cook for themselves. Part of the Foundation’s commitment is to ensure that the meals and community kitchens provided are nutritious and, whenever possible, include locally sourced ingredients. With almost two years experience in this program with partner Atira Women’s Resource Center – ABLF has real metrics that the program is not only effective, but successful in changing lives every day.

Through a food provision program, ABLF will provide job training and opportunities to individuals facing employment barriers such as mental illness and/or addiction. By partnering with restaurants and urban farms in the DTES, the Foundation will create work experience and education programs focused on food production and preparation as well as basic life and planning skills.
