Great Canadian Chicken BBQ

As National Sponsors of Canada Day for the 24th year, Chicken Farmers of Canada serves nearly 10,000 sandwiches every year on July 1st on at the Great Canadian Chicken BBQ. Each year, they find new and creative ways to find the unique recipe for the event.
This year, their recipe contest is being held among the Members of Parliament. In our #MPChickenHero campaign, MPs are being asked to enter their favourite grilled chicken sandwich recipes for a chance to win a donation to a food bank in their riding.
The MP that submits the winning recipe will win a $10,000 donation for a food bank in their riding. Second and third place will receive donations of $5,000 and $2,500 for their ridings.
That’s $17,500 for food banks, and some heroic recipes!

In addition to the contest prizes, 50 cents from the sale of each sandwich or chicken salad will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank. Since they joined the fight to end hunger, Chicken Farmers of Canada are proud to have raised nearly $370,000 to support the Ottawa Food Bank.
