Halifax Burger Week
March 26 – April 1, 2020
Halifax Burger Week is a city-wide burger eating phenomenon and fundraiser for Feed Nova Scotia. Creative burger offerings have a set price of $6 or a higher price with the restaurant making the donation to Feed Nova Scotia from every burger sold. The passport guides patrons all over the city to new restaurants or old favourites alike, all in the name of burgers! Raising over $435k for Feed Nova Scotia over the past seven years it has become the largest fundraiser for the organization outside of their own initiatives. #hfxburgerweek
