BEHOLD our Red Deer DECEMBER Burger of the Month
Created in collaboration with local guest Chef Savannah Snow from Red Deer Polytechnic
Poblano pepper and cocoa rubbed brisket, smokey bbq sauce, shredded jalapeño jack cheese, texas slaw with orange-chili dressing, fried banana peppers, frickle chip, and pickled yellow mustard seed on a toasted brioche bun!
$2 from every Lone Star burger sold goes towards Savannah’s local charity of choice – the Student’s Association Foodbank
More from Savannah on why she chose the SA Foodbank :
“The Students’ Association Food Bank was established in 1995 to help combat food insecurity in students. Covid has had a heavy impact on students and their finances, especially international students that are paying twice as much as a domestic student and are only allowed to work 20 hours a week off campus.
On top of Covid, students this year have seen a significant increase in their fees on top of the standard tuition increase. All of this amounts to students being unable to feed themselves and their families, ultimately putting their education on the back burner.
The SA Food Bank provides hampers once a semester, at any point given we’ve received an application. We also provide special Christmas hampers to make sure students are eating over the break. We accommodate different health and religious diets; Anything we can’t purchase will be covered by gift cards included in the hamper.
Though the numbers have yet to be finalized, this year has been one of the busiest for our Food Bank, and we’re finding that we’re struggling to keep up with the requests. Any help from the community will result in more students reaching graduation and keeping their children fed and healthy.”
