FeastVanPoster2013Kudos to organizer, Joe Chaput, who announced yesterday that FeastVan raised over $2,500 for the Strathcona Community Center Backpack Food Program. FeastVan was created to introduce diners to the fabulous array of restaurants in East Vancouver while at the same time raising funds for the Strathcona Backpack Food Program. This program was established to bridge the gap for low income families and help provide school age children with healthy food over the weekends when they do not have access to school lunch programs.    FeastVan was held from January 18th to February 3rd and during that time, $1.00 from each meal of participating restaurant was donated to the Backpack Program.  Some funds were raised from beverage sales and donations from customers and staff.   Participating restaurants in East Vancouver that deserve a shout out for participating in this worthy event include:  The Acorn, Au Petit Chavignol, Bao Bei, Campagnolo Roma, The Cascade Room, East of Main, Eigth 1/2 Restaurant Lounge, El Camino’s, Habit, Harvest Community Foods, Les amis du FROMAGE, Les Faux Bourgeois, Nicli Antica Pizza, The Parker, Pat’s Pub, R&B Brewing, The Union Bar and Vincino Pasteria & Deli.
