Being the burger fanatic that my brother is, he wouldn’t miss this event for the world! Today is M&M’s 23rd annual charity BBQ day benefiting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. The outdoor BBQ event takes place every year on the first Saturday of May at all M&M Meat Shop locations across the country, and yesterday they kicked started the beginning of the event at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. All the money raised at this event goes directly to the foundation to fund research for these diseases. The outdoor BBQ takes place today at all M&M Meat Shop locations across Canada until 4pm and I was there with my family today to snag a few burgers, a few cups of their awesome peach juice, and of course, a few photos 😉
I remember coming to my first M&M’s BBQ when I was little with my dad and at the time I had no idea what it was all about and could only focus on how yummy my peach juice was! For a minimum donation of $2.50, you get a hot-off-the-grill burger or hot dog (ask to make sure they have the veggie option at the particular location you’re at), peach juice, and a little baggy of chips. It’s beautiful out and so perfect for barbequing. My brother was certainly a happy camper! Slathered on some relish and mustard and we were good to go. M&M charity burger quota filled for the year 😀
