Grilling for a better community

The one thing that is better than enjoying Bâton Rouge food, is enjoying Bâton Rouge food and supporting a good community cause at the same time.

Bâton Rouge Candiac will be donating 50% of its profit on the day of Saturday May 29, 2021 to Innovation Jeunes. 

Innovation Jeunes is a community organization that offers a structured environment of support for youth and families in downtown Montreal. Its programs focus on the betterment of the physical well-being and food security for youth, and the development of integrated relationships in the lives of the youth and families. The organization also gives special attention to the youths’ academic success. During the pandemic, they opened an emergency food bank to respond to the food security crisis in Montreal.

This fundraising initiative came to life due to the efforts of the new owners of Bâton Rouge Candiac, the Siddiquis, who acquired ownership of the restaurant back in (Month, 2020).

Yasseen Siddiqui, the current manager of BR Candiac, is a big supporter of Innovation Jeunes activities and social programs since his youth years, while growing up in Montreal.

The new owners, Dr. Aejaz Saddiqui and his son Yaseen, look forward to host similar special events and get to meet the local community in person when the restaurant re-opens its dining rooms in the near future.  In this occasion,  the Siddiquis would like to share with the community of Bâton Rouge Candiac the following message:

“We are happy to help those in need. Unity and strength  starts by helping those in your community when they need it most."
