1000 Cooks For the Cure

This July, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation( is partnering with KitchenAid Canada to challenge anyone who enjoys cooking and entertaining to turn a summer gathering – whether it’s an office potluck or weekend BBQ – into a “party with a purpose.”

This initiative, called 1,000 Cooks for the Cure, is part of a North American program to enlist at least 1,000 cooks in Canada and the U.S. to host any type of get-together from July 19-28.  Participating cooks will simply ask their guests to make a donation to the CBCF in any amount to support the fight against breast cancer. Those interested in hosting a party are encouraged to visit

National BBQ Day

Don’t forget,  July 13th 2013 is National BBQ Day (, in support of local food and local farmers. Hundreds of grills across Canada will be fired up in support of Meal Exchange’s fourth annual National BBQ Day, a backyard celebration of local food. One of the first and only national events aimed at raising the profile of locally sourced foods, National BBQ Day encourages Canadians to host a BBQ in their own backyard with family and friends, using as much local food as possible. Participants can register their event on the National BBQ Day website and are urged to share their National BBQ Day experience through social media (#NationalBBQDay) to win prizes and raise awareness of local foods available and where they got them.  If you’re going to be grilling why not participate?
