Halifax renamed Burger Town for Halifax Burger Week

March 26 – April 1, 2020

What is burger week?

Halifax Burger Week is a city-wide burger eating phenomenon and fundraiser for Feed Nova Scotia put on by The Coast. Creative burger offerings have a set price of $6 or a higher price with the restaurant making the donation to Feed Nova Scotia from every burger sold. The passport guides patrons all over the city to new restaurants or old favourites alike, all in the name of burgers! Raising over $285k for Feed Nova Scotia over the past six years it has become the largest fundraiser for the organization outside of their own initiatives.

Feed Nova Scotia

The way the community comes together each year to help Nova Scotians is nothing short of amazing. Halifax Burger Week has raised over $435k for Feed Nova Scotia over the last seven years. Every $2 raised by the Halifax Burger Week restaurants allows Feed Nova Scotia to distribute 3 meals worth of donated food for Nova Scotians. Nova Scotia has the highest rates of food insecurity in the country so addressing food insecurity should be a priority for all Nova Scotians.
