The fight against HIV and AIDS is as easy as picking up a menu, as the ninth annual Dining Out for Life returns to Greater Victoria restaurants on April 24.

For one day only, more than 75 restaurants will donate 25 per cent of their food sales to AIDS Vancouver Island. To date, the event has raised more than $200,000 for HIV/AIDS programs and services on Vancouver Island.

“Nutrition plays a crucial role in keeping the effects of HIV and AIDS in check.” said Gill Scadeng, nutrition program co-ordinator at AIDS Vancouver Island.

“It’s wonderful that people can come together over a great meal knowing they’re helping to provide nourishment and care to others in their community.”

Participating Victoria restaurants include Canoe Brewpub, Ferris’ Grill, Tapa Bar, Brickyard Pizza, Yates Street Taphouse and Grill, The Sticky Wicket Pub and more.
