Burger It Forward is a national celebration of Canadian beef burgers with community heart!

The goals of Burger It Forward:

  • To help relieve food insecurity regionally and across the country
  • To 'beef up' the protein portion of food bank offerings
  • To support local/community level restaurants across the region
  • To grill up some of the tastiest beef burgers across the province!

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).


Ontario's beef farmers are ready to 'Burger It Forward' to food banks. For a decade, Beef Farmers of Ontario (BFO) has worked with Feed Ontario to provide ground beef to children, families and folks in need across the province through its Ontario Beef Program.

BFO is pleased to be a part of the Burger It Forward campaign and will be providing $10,000 worth ground beef to food banks across Ontario through the Feed Ontario network.

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.
