Spend some time colouring well-known Montreal restaurants for a good cause

Apr 24 2020, 9:09 am

You might not be able to eat at your favourite Montreal spots but you sure can colour them.

As part of a new initiative to benefit the Montreal Restaurant Workers Relief Fund (MRWRF), artist Stephanie Gagnon has created a colouring book featuring a slew of popular Montreal eateries who have contributed to the relief fund.

Colourable spots include Lo√Įc, Joe Beef, Candide, Arthurs, Clarke, Elena, Garde Manger, and Reservoir. H4C and Cafe Neve have also contributed to the cause (after the colouring book was made.)

Gagnon tells Daily Hive that “other talented artists have created illustrations for the MRWRF” and she encourages everyone to go visit the organization’s Instagram profile to view “more incredible work.”

With restaurants, bars, and cafes closing across the city as a result of the lockdown, a group of volunteers launched the MRWRF to provide emergency economic relief to the industry’s employees.
The fund provides “aid by transferring direct financial relief‚ÄĚ to eligible applicants.

The Montreal¬†Restaurant Workers Relief Fund‚Äôs management team is made up of restaurant workers, McGill law students, and non-profit experts who say they will ‚Äútake every measure to ensure funds are being distributed to those who need them.‚ÄĚ

The e-colouring book is available through the Brunette website for $2 with all proceeds going towards the MRWRF.

“Whether you’re staying in the lines or giving these Montreal restaurants a redesign, colouring these pages is good ol’ family fun for everyone,” reads the Montreal¬†Resto Workers Relief Fund Instagram page.

How about fusing a bit of colouring and taste together this weekend? The Lo√Įc cheese burger might be a good place to start:
