Help financially challenged SFU students, local food growers and suppliers and the environment – all in one tasty meal at the first annual SFU Bursary Fund charity dinner Friday, Sept. 21, 6:30 p.m. at the Burnaby campus Diamond Alumni Centre (DAC).

The mouthwatering event, part of this year’s two-week provincial EAT BC! campaign (Sept. 14-30), features an all-local menu including wild Chinook salmon and free-range chicken breast, paired with complimentary local wines, appetizers and dessert.

The $75 price includes tax, tip, and a chance to win one of three EAT BC! contest prizes including dinner out every week for a year, $1000 in free gas and a $250 grocery gift certificate. Diners could also win a door prize, and groups purchasing whole tables (8 seats) will get an extra prize draw ticket per person.

The EAT BC! campaign aims to support local growers and suppliers and thereby help the environment by reducing the amount of shipping and fuel consumption needed to put food on our plates.

Participating EAT BC! restaurants at the Burnaby campus include the DAC, MacKenzie and residence cafeterias, the Highland Pub, The Ladle and Nature’s Garden Organic Deli in the Cornerstone building.
