The Canadian dream is coming true for those who want to eat poutine for seven consecutive days. Leave the guilt behind and dig into Calgary Poutine Week April 21 - 29. Every poutine sold during Calgary’s cheesiest week of the year provides a free meal to someone in need.

Mealshare, a small but mighty force, sold just over 5,000 poutines last year, feeding more than just poutine lovers. Over 50 restaurants served poutine with a purpose last year, including the week’s top sellers at the Ship and Anchor, Bookers, Wurst, and Bank and Baron.

The week includes never-tried-before poutines as participating restaurants get creative for fans of the fry and gravy indulgence. Buy a poutine and provide a meal for someone in need and explore some of Calgary’s best. Don’t forget to use #PoutineWeekYYC if you post your good deeds and heaping piles of cheese curd, gravy and fries!
