Restaurant supports food bank

Original Joe’s Restaurant & Bar, in partnership with Big Rock Brewery, rallied behind Food Banks B.C.

Original Joe’s Restaurant & Bar, in partnership with Big Rock Brewery, has presented Food Banks B.C. with the proceeds raised by the Community Pint program.

All OJ’s restaurants, including in Vernon, joined forces to collectively raise $9,450. A total of $43,808 was raised for food bank associations across all participating OJ’s markets.

”We are proud to support organizations like Food Banks B.C. that directly contribute to the well-being of the communities we serve,” said Bobby Ewing, Original Joe’s area manager.

“OJ’s mission to feed the hungry is true both within the walls of our restaurants and in the cities we call home. It is our honour to continue to support Food Banks B.C.”

From now until September, OJ’s customers can enjoy the Summer Fresh menu and support the company’s continuing partnership with the non-profit organization, Mealshare.

For a limited time, when customers purchase steamed mussels or a miso salmon salad, a meal will be provided to someone in need through Mealshare. Half of the meals are provided locally while the other half are provided in developing countries through Save the Children.
