Chop Chop Fall, 2017 – Restaurants Present to Lunch Connection

The restaurants who satisfied our bellies and tastebuds during Chop Chop Fall, 2017, presented a total of $7,769 to Lunch Connection today.  This amount makes a grand total of over $50,000 presented to this important cause since donations began in 2013.

$1 from every Chop Chop dish sold during Chop Chop Restaurant Week is given back to Lunch Connection by the participating restaurants.  In turn, every dollar given provides a nutritious lunch to a student through this program.  It’s a wonderful way to feel that extra gratification when eating out during Chop Chop – it’s great for everyone, all around.

Uptown Saint John Inc. and the Saint John City Market have partnered to offer FREE Horse Drawn Trolley rides around King’s Square every Saturday in December, leading up to Christmas, between 1-3pm.  The trolley stops on King Square North – so gather the kids, bring your date, or venture out on your own to enjoy a nostalgic ride around the decked out King’s Square.
