About Us 

The Most Delicious Night Out for Over 20 Years.

A recipe for tasty success:  take generous restaurants contributing an amazing 25% of sales, combine with caring people who dine out and donate every year, and season with sponsors supporting every aspect of the event.

NOTE: due to the pandemic the 25% amount may be waved by some cities for 2021, and/or other event modifications may be in place.

A Taste for Life started in Ottawa in 1999 as a joint effort of Bruce House ‚Äčand the Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation (no longer in operation). The tradition now continues with Bruce House operating A Taste for Life, which has been joined by communities from across the nation.

Participating Taste restaurants open their doors for one evening each April and donate 25% of their evening sales to an HIV/AIDS Service Organizations in their community.  Funds collection will directly help people living with HIV. Testing and treatment, care and support, food and shelter, hope and community.   Please see each city’s page for more info about your local HIV/AIDS agency and their programs.

It’s that easy to make a difference in the lives of so many!
