No doubt you’re looking to make resos at Toronto’s top restaurants. Why not help others while you’re at it? 

Restaurants for Change takes place next month, but you’re going to want to book your table now – these one night only reservations go fast.

This exciting annual dining event takes place Wednesday, October 17 at 75 restaurants in 19 cities across Canada, with 38 participating right here in Toronto. 

Each restaurant will donate 50 to 100 per cent to of total food sales from dinner service that evening to support community food programs in low-income neighbourhoods. Your meal won’t cost any extra, but it will support crucial programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty and food insecurity. Win-win.
