One of the best parts of our jobs at Chicken Delight is getting out into the communities that have supported us for 70 years!
Check back to this section often for upcoming community appearances and reports from our adventures!
Chicken Delight is proud to be one of the sponsors of Chicken Fest, a signature annual fundraising event hosted by the Rotary Club of Winnipeg West for 70 years.
Proceeds from Chicken Fest go directly back into our community. Over the years, funds have been raised for major projects such as Winnipeg Harvest, The Rainbow Society, Habitat for Humanity, The Winnipeg Humane Society and Camp Manitou.
Most recently, the feature project was The Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation and their new home in the Specialized Services for Children and Youth (SSCY) Centre in Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada. Event proceeds went to help children with special needs and disabilities to have the same opportunities as all children.
Teddy Bear Picnic 2018
Chicken Delight has supplied warm chicken dinners to the Teddy Bear Picnic take-down crew for a number of years. We’re proud to support the team with a delightful treat after the end of a busy day bringing joy to so many families! In 2018 we supplied 125 chicken dinners to the crew!
“After 14 hours of producing Winnipeg’s favourite Teddy Bears’ Picnic, our takedown crew raved about the fantastic chicken dinner.
There is something about having a hot meal after working hard that revitalizes a person.
Our take down crews finished more than a half hour before usual, so we had to accelerate the pick-up of the second order to some at seven and the balance at seven thirty but your staff was exceptional in accelerating the orders and we thank them.
We understand that effects your supper time work load which even makes their effort to accommodate us even more appreciated.
Again, on behalf of the Picnic Committee and the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, we thank you for your generous donation of your wonderful chicken dinners!”
Salvation Army Volunteer Appreciation
We were happy to join in showing our appreciation to all the volunteers who work with the Salvation Army’s Toy Centre for underprivileged families!
Every year, a total of fifty volunteers and staff run the Toy Centre for four days, bringing a little more happiness to people who need it.
We thank them for their time and efforts and that’s what we supplied a free lunch to the Centre Salvation Army’s Toy Centre – for all the good work they are doing.
Double B Rodeo and Country Fair
If you’re looking for a fun weekend out with friends and family, head out to Beausejour Manitoba, Canada for the annual end-of-summer Double B Rodeo and Country Fair at the CPTC Grounds just east of town.
This semi-pro event has been running since 1993 and includes bull riding, bronco riding, tie down riding, steer wrestling, chariot racing, a parade and midway rides.
There’s something for everyone of all ages – even a cowboy driving the 1958 Chicken Delight chicken mobile! That cowboy is Ron Borkowsky, owner of the Beausejour Manitoba Chicken Delight (along with CD, our Chicken Delight mascot).
