There's a prison-themed sandwich pop-up happening in Toronto right now

Jan 30 2019, 5:16 pm

For a limited time in Toronto, you can get a sandwich that serves a bigger purpose than simply satisfying a craving.

Dave’s Killer Bread has opened the doors to CLUB FED, a pop-up sandwich shop featuring a criminally delicious menu curated by celebrity chef Marc Thuet.

And the meals here don’t just feed your belly; they feed potential. Because 50% of the proceeds from each sale made go towards charities giving ex-convicts and at-risk communities a second chance.

CLUB FED’s theme is based on the brand’s belief that second chances transform lives. It’s inspired by Dave Dahl, co-founder of Dave’s Killer Bread, who reinvented his life and himself in the family bakery after spending 15 years in prison.

“We believe that a meal can be an act of goodness, and encouraging people to join us in this mission is the goal behind CLUB FED,” said Rachel Leung, Brand Manager of Weston Foods in a release.

“In the same way that bread gave back to Dave, we want to give back by supporting rehabilitative and skills training programs, and do so in a bold, killer setting that brings our bread and the brand to life,” Leung said.

The pop-up has partnered with SKETCH Working Arts, an organization that engages youth experiencing poverty and homelessness through the transformative power of art.

Another partner is The Bridge, which provides services for men who have been incarcerated to enable rehabilitation and reintegration into their communities.
