Business Of The Month  
Justice Burgers

Justice Burgers wants to make sure you eat! 

Officially opened for business in September 2016, this small local eatery has been dishing out to paying customers and non-paying customers alike to ensure no one goes hungry.

A wall in the restaurant covered with coupons means anyone can walk in and get a burger if they’re hungry. Patrons can purchase a $5 coupon to add to the wall and ‘pay it forward’, anyone is welcome to take a coupon for a free burger no questions asked.

Featured on Global News, Rogers TV and in the Toronto Star, Justice Burgers is a little taste of Oshawa generosity in the downtown core.

This past winter they donated money to buy supplies for a small outdoor skating rink in Brick-by-Brick park as well as donating food to St. Vincent’s Kitchen along with their Giveback Wall initiative.

Congratulations to Justice Burgers for being named Business of the Month for May 2017! Featured in the photo pictured left to right are Chamber Ambassador Lisa McKnight of McCAM Insurance, Chamber Ambassador Karissa Jones of The House Wren Virtual Assistant, Adam Dempsey, Co-Owner of Justice Burgers, Chamber Ambassador Alex Valcour of Durham Outlook for the Needy and Chamber Ambassador Ivano Labricciosa of OPUC.
