Dine OutSide was created to provide everyone with a well-earned break from the kitchen, whilst also supporting our beloved hospitality industry. As we venture safely and carefully back to restaurants, patios, parks, beaches, and into neighbourhoods outside of our communities, we want to remind locals and visitors what to expect from your culinary adventures, as well as offering practical precautions that keep you, hospitality workers, and our communities safe.

The BCHF’s fundraising model, which relied almost exclusively on in-person events, was turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. The need for the help we provide, however, hasn’t disappeared. We’re fortunate to be receiving support from others in the hospitality industry, including Tourism Vancouver. The BCHF is Tourism Vancouver’s charity of choice, and we hope you’ll consider donating to our organization when you taste the pleasures of dining out by taking part in their new “Dine OutSide” promotion.

Running from August 21st to September 21st, Dine OutSide is an extension of Tourism Vancouver’s popular Dine Out™ program. It will give food and drink lovers from Metro Vancouver and visitors from across BC a chance to enjoy the summer weather and the sights on restaurant patios, combining al fresco dining with social distancing.

The BCHF hopes you’ll also take this opportunity to support workers in the hard-hit hospitality sector by contributing to our registered charity, which provides assistance to hospitality workers facing facing financial crisis due to an extraordinary health condition, as well as administering a scholarship program.
