Peterborough's All day Breakfast and Lunch Location
Fork It is a family owned and operated business, located on Charlotte Street in Peterborough Ontario. Our restaurant is a home away from home for many local customers, as well as travelers from far and wide.
When I first decided to start this adventure I made a plan to give back. I decided on doing a charity of the month. I wanted to choose an organization every month that is important to me. I will be working 5-6 days a week serving and will donate 10% of all my gratuities to a charity every month and 10% of all sales on the last day of the charity month. This will start this coming Tuesday March 17th and go until April 25th. I’m honored to share our first charity. We will be sponsoring team Benson Dunlop in the Peterborough Butterfly Run.
Charity of the Month
I’m honored to share our first charity. We will be sponsoring team Benson Dunlop in the Peterborough Butterfly Run. The Peterborough Butterfly Run is a family friendly Walk/Run event at Millennium Park in Peterborough (beside the Silver Bean Cafe). The event includes a chip-timed 5km walk/run and 1km Memorial Walk. It is held to raise awareness and funds with a goal of supporting families and individuals who have experienced a loss during pregnancy, the loss of a child, or are unable to conceive.
I am also sharing my friends story(with her permission):
"Hello Everyone, On September 25th, 2019 We lost our sweet Benson at 19 weeks gestation. It was one of the hardest things to go through. The Butterfly Run provided us with a care package to take home with some sentimental things which helped with the grieving process. We are hoping to fund-raise to help with the costs to make these care packages to moms and dads alike in need. There are a great population of parents who lose their loved ones that we are unaware of. We also are hoping to raise awareness for infant loss, and run on behalf of our little boy Benson Dunlop. Please donate for this great cause."
We would like to wish Team Benson Dunlop success in their fundraising for this great cause and we are excited to try and help them exceed their goal.
