Edna helps us give back to the local Lacombe Food Bank this month
BEHOLD our Lacombe DECEMBER Burger of the Month
created in collaboration with guest Chef Edna Macleod of Oodles of Chocolates
Grilled marinated chicken breast, guajillo cocoa mole (moh-lay) sauce, grilled pineapple, iceberg, onion, and beefsteak tomato, on a garlic butter toasted brioche bun!
$2 from every burger sold will go directly to Edna’s local charity of choice – the Lacombe Food Bank
Words from Edna on why she chose the local food bank :
“Many years ago I worked in a small grocery store in Red Deer. One day, shortly before Christmas, an older man came into the store and asked me if he gave me $100 if I would put together everything one would need for a turkey dinner and deliver it to an address he provided.
I said sure and quickly put together all the fixings for a delicious Christmas dinner along with some extra treats. After work I grabbed the box and headed off to the address he had provided.
I walked up to the door and rang the doorbell. A young man answered the door with 2 small children in tow. I handed him the box and told him the story about the man coming into the store.
With tears running down his face he thanked me profusely and told me he had thought that there would not be a Christmas dinner.
I have never forgotten that experience. First of all the trust that that man placed in me to not take the money and run and secondly the look on that young Dad’s face. It is possible for any of us to have circumstances change in life and to be put in a position where we might need help to put food on our table and it is great to know that the Lacombe Food Bank exists to make sure no one ever goes hungry.”
