#BrokeJanuary may be over, but we all know it’s important to save money, no matter what month it is.
And the $1 ‘Food Festivals’ happening in North York and the Dovercourt and Dufferin Grove area next week are sure to help you keep pinching those pennies.
Food-ordering-app Ritual is launching in these neighbourhoods, and they’re bringing with them cheap eats galore.
- A definitive list of chocolate bars ranked from worst to best
- The GTA is about to get 10 more pizza vending machines
- You can get pink vegan Mac n 'Cheese' on Queen West starting this week
The North York Festival is a huge one, featuring nearly 40 local restaurants.
If you’re new to Ritual, you can participate and get food for $1 multiple times throughout the week, to a maximum of five times. All you need to do is use the search tag ‘NYDOLLARFEST’ and choose your inexpensive meal from the giant list of restaurants.
If you’re already an app-user, you must refer at least one new person to Ritual using your in-app link in order to gain access to the festival. Once the person you refer places their first order between Feb 11 and Feb 22, you can order your $1 meals.
App points and credits will be given to the referrer and referee, respectively.
