If you live in Calgary, you should be on the lookout for the Edo Elves who will spreading holiday cheer with good deeds starting today, Nov. 28 until Dec. 21. Edo Japan is a locally-based, Canadian Teppan-style fast-casual restaurant. I love them because I can always count on getting a delicious plate of food that is freshly prepared, served sizzling hot and with loads of flavour. I also love them because I can grab Max some avocado rolls, which are on the list of 5 things he will actually eat. (Read to the end of this post and you will have the chance to win a $25 gift card so that you can try them out too.)
Edo Japan is also helping the Calgary Food Bank to provide food and resources to those in need. Together, both organizations are working to reduce hunger in communities in which they serve and make the holiday season simply better. For every $25 gift card sold, Edo Japan will donate $5 to a local food bank, in hopes of raising more than $15,000.
“Edo Japan cares about the community and would like to make our customers and others lives Simply Better during the holiday season,” said President and CEO, Tom Donaldson. “Hunger affects people from all walks of life and Edo Japan has been supporting the food bank for a number of years now. This holiday season, we wanted to give back not only to the food bank, but to our customers and our different communities as well. We hope our Edo Elves will spread some joy and encourage others to make this a simply better holiday season.”
