Across Canada our frontline workers are working long, stressful hours fighting COVID-19. Many frontline workers are living separately from their families during this difficult time in order to protect their loved ones.
At BarBurrito Canada we would like to do our part to say thank-you to our courageous frontline workers, and we are inviting you to join us.
For each donation of $5, you can supply a burrito to a frontline worker. BarBurrito will match each donation, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.
UPDATE: Thanks to your generous donations, we have surpassed the fundraising goal and all burrito deliveries have been completed!

“we cannot thank you enough for the burritos delivered today for our staff at Seven Oaks General Hospital in Winnipeg. I have discovered that this is one of their favorite restaurants in the area, and they were thrilled to get burritos from barBURRITO today! What a hit!

-Janet Maxwell, Seven Oaks General Hospital
“I am a staff member at Seven Oaks Hospital and am working as a door screener as my position at the Wellness Institute as a cardiac rehabilitation nurse is essentially on hold (the gym is closed). I would like to thank you for the food that you provided for so many staff on May 5/20. The burrito was delicious and it means the world to know that we are appreciated. You can count me as a customer from here on it because of your generosity.”
