Partner Non profit and Charities
We’re very grateful for the help we’re receiving from our friends in the hospitality industry, but unfortunately it won’t make up for the revenue we’ve lost as a result of having to cancel scheduled fundraising events. We are thinking strategically so we’ll be able to continue to do the work we love, and that will continue to be needed in the future. 

Thanks to everyone for their support during this challenging time!

The BCHF is based on the idea that we in the hospitality industry should help our own – and we’re delighted that during the challenge of COVID-19 we’re getting so much support from wineries, restaurants, and more. 

You can help by choosing to make purchases that support our supporters!

The BCHF is a charity that supports hospitality workers facing financial crisis due to a health condition. These are the people who work in your favourite restaurants, wineries, breweries, bars, and hotels. Often with limited access to benefits or financial aid, our beneficiaries have nowhere else to turn if a health condition arises. Your support has a meaningful impact by getting them back on their feet again.
