It’s no secret that Victoria is famous for its abundance of out-of-this-world eateries—from brunch, to cocktails and everything in between, the possibilities are endless.

But what if your next dinner destination promised not only delicious eats, but the chance to benefit a good cause?

BC’s dairy farmers have partnered with four local restaurants and Food Banks BC to work towards just that—to raise $50,000 for those who need it most. Between Monday, May 9th and Sunday, June 19th, for every featured menu item (from the list below) ordered at one of these restaurants, BC’s dairy farmers will donate $3 to Food Banks BC.

Dining out or ordering takeout supports restaurants, dairy farmers, and families across BC all at the same time—and food tastes even better when you’re supporting local!

Without further ado, here are four local restaurants featuring delicious dishes for a good cause:

Pizzeria Prima Strada

More than 10 years ago, two people passionate for pizza founded Pizzeria Prima Strada. They fell in love with Neapolitan pizza and wanted to share it with their family, friends and Vancouver Island community.

Prima Strada has established relationships with local farms, breweries and wineries, proudly featuring their products in the pizzerias. The featured menu items include their Pizza Panna e Pancetta, house made Tiramisu, and Gelato.

Jam Cafe

This all-day breakfast and lunch cafe was originally opened on Herald Street in Victoria in the spring of 2012, and was immediately embraced by the city and its dining community. 

Inspired by recipes from the south, like their house made cornbread, buttermilk biscuits and fried chicken, they wanted to create a menu of comfort fare in a rustic-city atmosphere. Jam’s featured dishes include their Cinnamon Bun Pancakes, Apple Cinnamon Pancakes and house made Fried Chicken + Waffles.
