Thirty local Asian restaurants in Metro Vancouver have come together to launch a meal initiative to help feed frontline medical staff.

Co-created by the Chinese Restaurant Awards, Chopsticks to Heroes’ goal is to donate 1,500 meals, 100 meals per day over 15 days, to healthcare workers at the Vancouver General Hospital.

This campaign, which kicks off on April 6, will distribute hundreds of meals from some of Vancouver and Metro Vancouver’s top Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants, along with two Japanese spots too.

“Through our twelve years of experience in collaboration and operation, Chinese Restaurant Awards has established an inseparable relationship with local Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants,” said Rae Kung, Managing Director of Chinese Restaurant Awards.

“We are honoured to be the supporting organization of the #ChopstickstoHeroes Campaign, by connecting the generosity of Asian restaurants with the bravery of frontline health care workers.”
