Questions about Feed Nova Scotia

Q: Why doesn’t every participating restaurant donate to Feed Nova Scotia?

A: We love that so many of our participating restaurants fundraise for Feed Nova Scotia during Halifax Burger Week but we also recognize that many restaurants do a lot of their community by donating to Feed Nova Scotia and to other causes throughout the year as well.  We leave it up to the restaurant.

Q: Why $6 burgers? How come they don’t donate on top of that?

A: We want to make participation in Halifax Burger Week accessible for everyone!

Q: Why doesn’t The Coast donate to Feed Nova Scotia?

A: We get asked this question a lot—our contribution is a little harder to realize. The fees collected from the restaurants pay for The Coast to put on the promotion. We use these fees to pay for event staffing and management, advertising, marketing collateral and street teams. We could use the fees to donate to Feed Nova Scotia but then the participation fees would have to go up.


Questions about Passorts

Q: What is the deadline for turning in my passport?

A: You have one week to turn in your passport to The Coast or to a participating location. If you don’t get it in by then you will not be entered to win Beer for a Year. We go around to every restaurant picking up the ballot boxes to make sure everything passport is entered.
