What is La Poutine Week?
For its 10th edition, La Poutine Week guarantees poutine offerings that will satiate the most discriminating palates. For two weeks, over 100 restaurants in the greater Montreal area will put their signature spin on Québec’s unofficial-official dish in the name of friendly competition. Prizes and bringing rights will be awarded for “People’s Choice” and “Judge’s Choice” among other categories via the La Poutine Week website.
Poutine for a Cause
For the fourth year in a row, La Poutine Week is proudly giving back to a cause that they strongly support. One dollar from every poutine sold at participating restaurants will be donated to Anorexia and Bulimia Québec (ANEB), an organization that guarantees free, immediate and specialized help to people with an eating disorder and their loved ones. As well as United Way Winnipeg a non-profit helping communities in need across Winnipeg and Moisson Québec, a food bank organization in Québec City.
La Poutine Week NFTs!
The 2022 edition of La Poutine Week will introduce newly minted “La Poutine Boss” NFTs by the Montreal design Studio Notorious Kids. Holding a "La Poutine Boss" NFT will qualify people in contests, giveaways and events throughout 2022 and beyond. Proceeds of its sales will also go to help their charity partners.
As in-person dining is limited, but enjoying a delicious poutine is certainly not! That’s why this year La Poutine Week has partnered with DoorDash who will be offering 8$ off orders of 15$+ throughout the two-week festival on all eligible poutine orders available on DoorDash!
