Dine Strathcona community initiative supports local restaurants and WISH Drop-In Centre
The 2nd annual Dine Strathcona, formerly Dine Railtown, is happening now until November 30. Let’s support Strathcona’s restaurants, cafes and breweries while raising funds for WISH Drop-In Centre critical services and resources for marginalized and vulnerable members of the community, including a 24-hour drop-in centre where they serve over 9000 meals a month, emergency shelter, Mobile Access Project Van, and employment programs.
During Dine Strathcona, $1 from each featured dish ordered by dine-in, take out or delivery will be donated to WISH Drop-In Centre. This year’s Dine Strathcona participating restaurants and featured dishes:
