Dining Out For Life is an event that sees 25% of food sales from local restaurants donated to A Loving Spoonful and Friends for Life. These two charities help individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses.

Over 25% of the population living with HIV/AIDS in Canada are currently residing here in BC. New infection rates in BC have decreased as advanced therapies have helped with the quality of life.
