National BBQ Day is this weekend!

Yup, this Saturday, August 7th is National BBQ Day, and the national, youth-led charity Meal Exchange is inviting Canadians to take part in the yummy day while also fighting hunger in Canada.

What’s the ask?  It’s simple:

Register & host your own backyard BBQ for friends, family and neighbors to raise awareness about Canada’s hunger problems.

Meal Exchange believes that everyone in Canada should have access to sufficient, nutritious, and culturally acceptable food in order to maintain a healthy & active life.  Did you know that 2.7 million Canadians don’t know where their next meal is coming from?

How to participate (and a change to win 2 WestJet tickets!):

  • Register your BBQ at http://nationalbbqday.eventbrite.com/ and send Meal Exchange a photo of your BBQ’ing fun to nationalBBQday@mealexchange.com
  • You can also tweet about your BBQ fun using hashtag – #nationalBBQday

Registration is FREE, but here’s some food for thought: it takes only $28 for Meal Exchange to empower one youth to take action against hunger in their community. Donate here to help Meal Exchange support youth across Canada.

So this pretty much sounds like the perfect day to me – BBQ, a case of Rickard’s beer (taster’s pack – Red, White and Dark of course) and raising awareness about hunger.

Will you be participating?  Have a BBQ/grilling recipe worthy of National BBQ Day!
