Community Christmas Dinner

Skip to ticket registration

The Green Bean Cafe is excited to announce our third annual Community Christmas Dinner! We know that every year in our neighbourhood hundreds of students stick around the university campus for the holidays. In addition, there are many families and individuals around us looking for new ways to celebrate the Christmas season. The Community Christmas Dinner is our idea to draw these two groups of people together and unite them around a traditional Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.

The dinner will be held on Christmas Day (December 25) at noon. We’ll be eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, squash and delicious assortment of desserts.

If you’re an International Student this meal is for you! We really encourage you either take part in the International Student Centre‘s Host for the Holidays program or come over to the café and join us for dinner. It’s a great way to experience an authentic Canadian holiday! If you need it, we will have vegetarian options for you to enjoy.

Plan on bringing kids? Perfect! Christmas Dinner is no fun without kids running around. We’ll have some special treats for the kids and we’ll be playing a Christmas movie after the dinner.

We’re also excited to announce that this dinner is a totally free gift to our neighbourhood. To reserve your seat, all you have to do is put down a $5 fully refundable deposit. The $5 deposit helps us confirm our numbers for the meal. When you arrive for the dinner, the $5 is refunded to you! If you pay a deposit and don’t show up for the dinner, thanks, you’ve helped cover our cost! You can register and pay for the deposit online  (just scroll to the bottom of this page) or you can also get your ticket (and pay your deposit) anytime at the cafe.

To help make this all happen, we’re working with a great group of volunteers, the special help from our neighbours, University Community Church. If you are interested in volunteering  interested in volunteering for this event please look here for our complete volunteer package.

We love our neighbourhood and we’re so excited to be able to give back a little bit of all the good things that you have all done for us!
