During the entire month of February, be sure to warm up by checking out your favourite cafes, sweet shops and restaurants for their unique spin on everyone’s beloved winter drink. The best part is that a portion of every drink will go towards supporting Calgary Meals on Wheels, an even better reason to indulge in some warm chocolate goodness!

  • When: The entire month of February
  • Cost: Price of the Hot Chocolate + $1 will be donated to Meals on Wheels
