A Taste For Life 2017 - Wednesday, April 26th


Hope Made Delicious


On Wednesday, April 26th, 2017, Torontonians will be invited once again to take part in A Taste for Life simply by dining out at a Taste restaurant. Participating restaurants will donate a portion of their gross proceeds from the evening to support Fife House and people and families living with HIV/AIDS. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling the restaurants directly.

A Taste for Life is a restaurant-based fundraiser and one of Fife House's signature events. Last year, A Taste for Life raised more than $110,000 in support of Fife House with more than $130,000 in sales at participating restaurants and attracted over 3,500 diners. Now in it's 17th year, we hope to bring together 60 restaurants and raise $115,000. Due to the nature of the event and the commitment of volunteers, 93% of the money raised goes directly to programs and services at Fife House.

Taste diners are able to participate in our raffle the night of the event as a thank you for particpating. Our 2017 prizes include:

First Prize: TBA

Second Prize: TBA

Third Prize: TBA

Volunteer hosts are an integral aspect of this event. They invite their friends, family, coworkers and networks to dine at a restaurant at the event, helping us support the participating restaurants. If you are a volunteer host or are interesting in being one this year, you can access our 2016 Host Manual here.


If you own or manage a restaurant, and would like additional information on participation or you would like to become a volunteer host this year, please contact Sam Katz at skatz@fifehouse.org.
