Hungry Hearts 2020 - Mac & Cheese Event

Let's Get Cheesy! We're on the hunt for Victoria's favourite Mac & Cheese!

While the COVID pandemic forced the cancellation of Victoria’s favourite foodie fundraiser, Our Place has been cooking up a delicious and cheesy replacement!

“Hungry Hearts has always been about great food,” says Our Place Chief Executive Officer Julian Daly. “And we love the idea of partnering with our region’s amazing chefs to allow even more people to join in the fun with a unique culinary contest.”

From August 8 to September 8, participating restaurants will add a specialty Mac & Cheese dish to their menu, and patrons will then vote for their favourites. The results will be announced during an Our Place Hungry Hearts Virtual Gala on Saturday, September12, hosted live from Hungry Hearts 2020 Committee Chair Charlotte Salomon’s own home.

“The hotel and restaurant industry has been so supportive of the work we do, and they’ve been hit hard by this health crisis, too,” said Our Place CEO Julian Daly. “This contest will allow us to give back to them, while also raising much-needed funds to support our most vulnerable citizens.”

Viewers will be able to find out the winner of the Mac & Cheese contest and catch the live-streaming event at 5pm on September 12 through a link on the Our Place website:
