Lethbridge restaurant partners up with the Interfaith Food Bank for Canada Day Breakfast

June 29, 2020

The Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina has partnered up with the Interfaith Food Bank to put on a pancake breakfast on Canada Day. The owner of Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina, Bradley Whalen, says this is a great way to get the community out for a good cause, and drum up some business for the Galactic Cantina as well. There will also be a cosplay event later in the day.

The first part of the day, is the Pancake Breakfast from 8am-11am.

The partnership with the Interfaith Food Bank was easy says, Bradley Whalen, "One of the things we are doing is we're allowing people to bring food donations with them from 8am to 11am. Just trying to support the Target Hunger Food Drive they did. They didn't get the response they did from years past because of no bags, and all the covid-19 stuff. People that missed the Target Hunger Food Drive can actually bring their food donations, and Interfaith will get that as well."

The second part of the day will feature the cosplay celebration from 2pm-9pm.

Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina is encouraging cosplayers from anime backgrounds, Star Wars, or any type of Fantasy or Science Fiction cosplay to come down in their best costumes, and spend the day with like minded fans. The restaurant will be offering free spud nuts, and cold drinks all day.

In regards to the cosplay event on Canada Day, Bradley Whalen says, "We know people are struggling to find things to do. We want to promote the restaurant a little better, and get more people that haven't been here before to kind of be able to come in and enjoy it."

There will also be food specials, music outside, door prizes, and other giveaways for those who choose to come.
