Welcome to the sixth year of YYC Hot Chocolate Fest in support of Calgary Meals on Wheels, February 1 – February 28 across Calgary!
YYC Hot Chocolatefest celebrates the creativity of local eateries in this friendly and delicious competition to find Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolates as voted by Calgarians.  Through out February, you can sip with satisfaction as proceeds from every hot chocolate sold benefits Calgary Meals on Wheels! 

Each year, local restaurants and cafes create a signature hot chocolate, designed uniquely for YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, and sell this beverage for the month of February. Participating vendors and their unique drinks will be listed online at yychotchocolate.com.  Customers are encouraged to vote online to help determine which vendor will win the coveted title of "Calgary's Best Hot Chocolate" and "Calgary's Best Spirited Hot Chocolate."

About the Hometown Heroes Award Program 
Earth Day Canada's (EDC) Hometown Heroes Award Program has become one of Canada's most prestigious environmental awards. Established in 2004, the program recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders, groups and small businesses fostering meaningful, long-term community awareness and action. Local heroes, working at a grassroots level and often with very limited resources, can make an enormous difference to the health of our planet – they deserve our recognition. Learn more at earthday.ca/hometown.

About Earth Day Canada
Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world. Founded in 1990, Earth Day Canada is a national charity that inspires and supports people across the country to connect with nature and build resilient communities. We lead an annual Earth Day campaign in conjunction with free, year-round, award-winning programs that get people outside, interacting with the natural environment — this, in turn, fosters an intrinsically motivated, enduring commitment to stewardship and conservation.
