The new, limited-edition cold-press extra virgin olive oil ($15) originates from Côte d’Azure and offers a rich and pure olive flavour. A true kitchen workhorse, the multipurpose Spanish olive oil can be used for salads, dressings, drizzling, dipping, sautéing, even baking. The best part: $4 from each sale will be donated directly to Snacks for Kids. A long-time community partnership between VFC and the Vancouver School Board, the program provides healthy snacks, nourishing meals, and take-home groceries for thousands of the city’s most vulnerable students throughout the school year.
Off-duty firefighters will be volunteering the time on site at The Gourmet Warehouse on October 2 to meet and greet with customers at the East Vancouver specialty store and share samples of the new Snacks for Kids olive oil. —Noa Nichol
