Burger It Forward is a national celebration of Canadian beef burgers with community heart!
The goals of Burger It Forward:
Canada Beef is a not-for-profit organization that represents the 60,000 beef farming and ranching families across the country, providing promotion, information and advocacy for beef that's raised right here — Canadian beef.
Canada Beef is proud to lead the Burger It Forward campaign to help relieve food insecurity through food bank contributions.
As part of the national campaign, for every campaign featured burger purchased, Canada Beef will donate the equivalent of 1 meal to Food Banks Canada*.
*up to a maximum of 20,000 meals (based on Food Banks Canada's meal metric: $1 = 2 meals).
Manitoba Beef Producers represents all beef producers through communication, advocacy, research, and education to governments, consumers and others, to ensure a sustainable present and future.
As part of Burger It Forward, Manitoba beef ranchers and farmers are helping to 'beef up' regional food banks by donating $2,000 to Harvest Manitoba.
Harvest Manitoba is a not-for-profit charitable organization committed to ensuring no Manitoban goes hungry.
Currently, Harvest feeds over 90,000 Manitobans every month, 49% children, through its community food network of more than 360 food banks and partnered agencies across Manitoba including soup kitchens, schools and daycares.
Food Banks Canada supports a network of 10 Provincial Associations and more than 4750 hunger relief organizations from coast to coast to coast, in every province and territory. Together, they work collaboratively towards a Canada where no one goes hungry.

Recognizing the challenges local restaurants have faced over the past 2 years, participation in Burger It Forward is offered to restaurants with no registration fees.
Restaurants are encouraged to give back what they can to their local food banks as part of their contribution to the program. All Burger It Forward profiled burgers feature Canadian beef in support of local cattle farmers and ranchers.
