Popular Montreal bagel fundraiser returns to YEG

(Edmonton) – B’nai Brith Youth Organization – Northwest (BBYO NWC) is excited to announce a unique fundraising initiative that will bring the taste of Montreal’s famous St-Viateur bagels back to Edmonton for a second time. Beginning April 16, 2023, BBYO will be selling fresh St-Viateur bagels to Edmonton residents as part of its ongoing efforts to support local youth programming and leadership initiatives.

St-Viateur bagels are hand-rolled, wood-fired, and made with all-natural ingredients. They are a staple of Montreal’s food scene and have been featured in publications such as The New York Times and Bon Appétit. BBYO is partnering with St-Viateur Bagel to bring this beloved Canadian treat to Edmonton while raising funds for a worthy cause.

“Our partnership with St-Viateur Bagel is an exciting way for us to bring a taste of Montreal to Edmonton while supporting our mission to empower Jewish teens,” said Tammy Vineberg, chair of the BBYO Bagels for Breakfast fundraiser. “Not only will our supporters get to enjoy some of the best bagels in the country, but they’ll also be supporting BBYO’s efforts to empower Jewish teens in Edmonton to become leaders and make a positive impact on their communities.”

The St-Viateur bagels will be available for purchase online, with options for poppy seed and sesame seed as well as lox from Sgambaro’s, an Edmonton-based seafood business. Orders close on Monday, May 22 and CargoJet is generously sponsoring the overnight shipping of the fresh bagels on Wednesday, June 14.

“We’re excited to partner again with BBYO to bring the taste of Montreal to Edmonton,” said Nicolo Piazza, manager of business development for St-Viateur Bagel. “Our bagels are made with love and tradition, and we’re thrilled to share them with a wider audience while also supporting a great cause.”

All proceeds from the St-Viateur bagel fundraiser will go directly to supporting BBYO’s programs and initiatives in Edmonton, which include leadership training, community service projects, and social events for Jewish teens.
