Supporting Our Community
Over the past few years, we've proudly supported local community groups, health-based charitable initiatives, Afro-Caribbean Youth & Cultural Associations, local not-for-profit groups, and more.
Baccanalle generously supports local community initiatives and organizations through discounts of in-kind donations of auction items, catering and prepared meal services. In 2023, we became the Official Lunch Partner for the Ottawa BlackJacks - a Canadian Elite Basketball League professional Basketball team. We are extremely proud of this community commitment.
As a Black-owned business we are also deeply committed to creating employment alternatives to Canadian youth and young adults of African-Caribbean-Black descent.
For 2020 we are focussed our contributions on supporting vulnerable communities and Frontliners with meals.
In April 2020 we became a restaurant partner with Ottawa's Meals for Hope and Baccanalle supported more than 100 meals in the first month of joining alone. For more information or to donate please visit Meals for Hope.
In the spring of 2020, we were part of a network of Love Local Delivery restaurants participating in Feeding Our Community - supporting meals for frontline workers at Ottawa’s Carefor Health & Community Services and its vulnerable clients.
In the fall of 2020, Chef Resa and her Sister, Tracey Solomon, embarked on a new business partnership - starting up Afrotechture - designed to showcase Black Canadian Artisans in-store, online and on social! The venture is gratifying personally and professionally as they implement ways to create benefits for the community in their enterprise.
Chef Resa is incredibly honoured to have been awarded a Black History Ottawa Community Builder Award in 2021 for her support and dedication to Ottawa's Black Community.
