Ottawa Foodie Challenge

The word "foodie" is so polarizing these days, but if you love food, you'll love this event, even if it does have the "f" word in the title!

The Ottawa Foodie Challenge is a charity scavenger hunt that benefits The Ottawa Food Bank and promotes culinary exploration in our nation's capital. It's happening this Saturday, November 13th and yours truly is participating in the challenge! My teammate is one of the most passionate foodies I know, who is a lover of tea, ice cream and oranges among other things.

Created partly in an homage to a similar New York City event, The Ottawa Foodie Challenge not only promotes Ottawa's local food scene, but it also does its part to fight community hunger, as all proceeds go directly to the Ottawa Food Bank. The official list of scavenger hunt items goes live at 1:00 a.m. on the morning of the event, and if the NYC list is any indication, this is going to be fun!

I have to admit, I am a bit partial to the talented and charming organizers of this event, but regardless of whether or not you know them, I think you'll agree that their event sounds awesome! If you haven't yet registered, there's still time, so don't miss out! For those of you already registered, good luck!
