A Taste For Life 2015 - Wednesday, April 22nd

Hope made Delicious

Make Your Reservation Today!

On April 22nd, participating restaurants across the city will donate a percentage of sales to help Fife House provide residential programs and housing services for men, women and families living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto. Join us at one of 65 restaurants across Toronto.

How can you participate? It’s simple:

  1. Make a reservation at a participating “Taste” restaurant. Make sure to mention that you are coming for A Taste for Life. See the list below.
  2. Invite your friends, family and co-workers to join you to support a worthwhile cause. Plus, everyone who dines out will have a chance to win great prizes!
  3. The restaurant will donate 25% of the cost of your meal to Fife House.

Last year, A Taste for Life raised over $105,000 and attracted more than 3,500 at 60 restaurants across Toronto. Help us make 2015 our best year yet!

If you can't make the event and would like to support Fife House, help us by making an online donation through CanadaHelps.
