Participate in Buy BC: EAT DRINK LOCAL

Eat Drink Local and Buy BC logos

EAT DRINK LOCAL is a month-long campaign that encourages restaurants across the province to celebrate local food and beverage through B.C. inspired menus, dishes and drinks. Participating restaurants feature B.C. food and beverage products on their menus to inspire consumers to sample local food that’s grown, raised or made in B.C.

Whether your menu already includes B.C. food, or if you’re just starting to introduce local ingredients, this promotion is for you! Participation is free!

Due to the ongoing health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 EAT DRINK LOCAL promotion has been cancelled. Please check back soon for information about the 2021 campaign.
