From May 8 to May 21, a portion of the proceeds from all McDonald’s fries sold will go to help support the Canadian Red Cross.
Money raised by Canadians as part of the Fries For Good initiative will go directly to the Canadian Red Cross, who will then divide the proceeds raised among various funds, including the Canadian Emergencies & COVID-19 Response Fund, the Nova Scotia Stronger Together Fund, and disaster response and preparedness work across Canada.
McDonald’s says that Fries for Good is an initiative that will also help Canadian potato farmers.
“Our agriculture partners have been hit hard by COVID-19, and we are continually looking for ways to support them as we navigate the new and unforeseen challenges of this pandemic,” said John Betts, President and CEO, McDonald’s Canada. “Canadian farmers are a driving force in our business and we hope Canadians’ love for our fries will allow us to not only make a significant donation to the Canadian Red Cross, but also reinforce our support for Canadian potato farmers while making a positive impact on their business.”
For $26.95, you get 2 kids and 2 regular burritos for Cinco de Mayo! For $3 dollars more, you can get small burritos instead of the kids size. You also can add chips and salsa for an extra $9.
Considering that a kids burrito goes for $6.95, a small one for $8.95, and a regular one goes for $9.95, you’ll save up to $7.85 with this family pack!
You are alone? You can get Burrito Boxed Lunch (regular burrito, chips, salsa, canned drink and a cookie) for $12.95, a saving of $4.25!
Alas for me, the closest Mucho Burrito is on the other side of the Ottawa river – which is currently closed to non-essential travels. On the Quebec side, the closest is in Montreal, so that won’t be happening either.
I’ll come up with another plan.
But you can enjoy this sweet deal if you have a Mucho Burrito available now for pick-up or delivery.
If you like to shop at IKEA and plan your shopping spree in order to have to get lunch there so you can enjoy their iconic meatballs at their restaurant, IKEA has got your back.
No, you cannot order their KÖTTBULLAR meatballs online. They are sold frozen, so that might not be the best idea.
IKEA sells more than 1 billion of their meatballs every year. They know people are missing them. So IKEA has released a homestyle version of their iconic recipe, as a classic instruction manual. Read more!
Opened in the spring of 1976, under the ownership of famous hockey coach Brian Kilrea, (later joined by Nick Bouris), the Chances R is located in College Square in Ottawa. It offers a casual dining atmosphere and has that family operation to it. Kilrea still greets customers despite his age, and the Waffle has had the pleasure to exchange with him a few times.
Chances R closed theirs doors on March 16th but had decided to reopen for Easter. Not the dining room, of course, but if you’d like to treat yourself to a turkey dinner, Chances R will be there for you!
