The timing couldn’t be better to salute our local hospital and all the caring and compassionate staff that have continued to show up in incredible ways throughout the pandemic. Our October Guest Chef in Lacombe is just as passionate about community as she is for her job in the ER.
ER Nurse at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre Taryn McCrank served as our Guest Chef, helping to create the “Supercrunch”. It included crispy tempura fried chicken, grilled pepper bacon, spicy pepperoncini jam, fresh beefsteak tomato, cilantro, green onion, mixed greens, mary rose sauce on garlic butter toasted brioche bun. Finished with a pepperoncini bamboo pick. $2 from every “Supercrunch” burger is going directly towards Taryn’s charity of choice – the Lacombe Health Trust.
Taryn is proud of the close-knit feel of our community, and althouh her job is often tough, she loves her career and the opportunities it has afforded her to meet, get to know, and care for community members. In terms of Taryn’s selection of the Lacombe Health Trust to be on the receiving end of funds she pointed to wanting to further support the community “to directly influence and improve the healthcare that is provided to members of our community, directly benefiting our neighbours, friends and family”.
The volunteer Board of Trustees of the Lacombe Health Trust are tasked to mobilize resources and fund projects, equipment and education for health care workers and clients at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre. Projects are typically driven by the hospital needs, with the hospital approaching the Board with requests. Currently the Health Trust is working with the Lacombe Hospital and Alberta Health Services to update and improve the intake area of the hospital. The BOTM proceeds will help with that work.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Taryn helped us deliver $1350 to the Lacombe Health Trust today (Wednesday, November 3rd). Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guests for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $90,000 to local charities over the past 57 months! THANK-YOU!
The November Burger of the Month in Lacombe is “Takes two to Mango”, created in collaboration with local guest chef Jerel Peters! It includes an Alberta beef smash patty, spiced pork patty, queso fresco, Monterey jack quesadilla strips, mango salsa, iceberg lettuce, beefsteak tomato, and shaved onion on a garlic butter toasted brioche bun with a dried mango. $2 from every Lacombe BOTM sold goes directly to Jerel’s cause of choice, Central Alberta Youth Unlimited.
