MONTREAL — Le Burger Week 2020, sponsored by Saputo and Lightspeed, is returning from September 1 to 7, however, this year the event is being transformed into Le Cheeseburger Week. Thus, chefs and restaurants across Canada must abide by one rule — integrate cheese or “fauxmage” (vegan cheese) into their burger.
In addition to providing Canadian’s with a delicious and fun experience, Le Cheeseburger Week is committed to giving back to local communities notably, through its 2020 affiliation with United Way Centraide.
Heading into its ninth year, Le Burger Week asks restaurants across Canada to think outside the bun and create a unique burger reflective of their overall concept, style and cuisine. The 2020 edition will replace the traditional call to vote for the best burgers with a call to help through the charity partnerships. The event’s sponsors will be awarding the “Lightspeed Choice” and “Saputo Choice” awards to their favourite burgers.
To adapt to the current landscape, many of Le Cheeseburger Week’s participating restaurants will be offering their burgers for takeout and delivery. More information about Le Cheeseburger Week, including participating restaurants, is available at leburgerweek.com.
