Not long ago, Saint John was treated to a special Chop Chop Winter Restaurant Week menu. ?Although we were in the midst of an uptown 'state of emergency,' and were dealing with massive snowfall and accumulation, that didn't stop hungry foodies from enjoying the delicious chef specials. ?As one can see from the total amount donated, our restaurants chopped up a good number of meals, despite the weather, and happily presented a plump sum to Lunch Connection today. ?The donation amount presented was $3,774 which represents $1 for EVERY Chop Chop meal sold this winter.
Lunch Connection is a program which provides a?free hot meal at lunch time in a safe environment at our local schools in vulnerable neighbourhoods. ?This is an excellent opportunity for both the Chop Chop restaurants and those who indulge in the delicious week to give back. ?Find out more about the Lunch Connection program?here.
