As if we needed any more reason to love Cold Comfort Ice Cream!

In an announcement on Instagram, one of Victoria’s favourite ice cream parlours has shared their intention to create scholarship funds for Indigenous high school students in the city from sales made on Canada Day.

For every patron who brings their own reusable cup for their ice cream purchase between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. on July 1st, all sales proceeds will be put towards building these scholarships.

This initiative by Cold Comfort was first launched last year on Canada Day, allowing the business to present three local Indigenous students with $1,000 scholarships each upon graduation.

“Cold Comfort would like to acknowledge that we have been working on the traditional Lkwungen territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt people for the past 9 years,” reads their post.

“Moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation, we would like to invite you to join us once again in creating more scholarships for Indigenous high school students in our community.”

The business will also be accepting extra donations for the scholarships via email transfer at autumn@coldcomfort.ca.

For those who don’t know, Cold Comfort produces small batches of flavourful locally made ice cream that is available in organic dairy, dairy free, and vegan options.

Head over ASAP!
