Breaking Bread Launches Industry Fundraiser


VANCOUVER — B.C.-based restaurant and foodservice industry support hub Breaking Bread has launched a photography fundraiser called ‘Behind the Plexi’ to provide a helping hand to Vancouver’s restaurant-industry workers in the time of COVID-19.

A collaboration between Breaking Bread and local restaurateur Brad Roark of @nookrestaurant and @oddfishrestaurant, this raw-photo essay features a behind-the-scenes glimpse into 33 beloved local restaurants during the pandemic, such as Ask for Luigi, Kula Kitchen, Como Taperia, St. Lawrence Restaurant and more by offering a series of limited-edition prints available for purchase until Monday, May 31 via

All proceeds from the sale of each print will be dedicated to the creation of two new scholarships for restaurant workers who have experienced employment set-backs due to COVID-19 — one via the BC Hospitality Foundation and the other to the Chinese Restaurant Awards scholarship at Vancouver Community College. The Chinese Restaurant Awards will also contribute $10 for every print sold from the collection of photos taken at Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants.
