Basil & Mint is a founding member to the Smart Meals Initiative. 

Basil & Mint is a West Coast contemporary restaurant, recognized for its locally sourced ingredients and authenticity in Kelowna’s West Coast cuisine. The restaurant first opened its doors in July 2015, and has been welcomed by locals and tourists alike, illustrated by receiving a Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor for 3 consecutive years. This means they have sustained an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least 4 out of 5 stars over each year they have been eligible for the award. Basil & Mint is currently rated at 4.5 stars with 507 reviews, claiming them as a top 10 food destination in Kelowna. The continuation of their success is largely founded by Red Seal Executive Chef, Peter McGeown, and his menu inspired by fresh ingredients sourced locally from British Columbia. With this, he strives to offer an authentic menu that provides a unique and enjoyable experience catered to all preferences. 

As a founding member of the Smart Meals Initiative, we are very appreciative of Basil & Mint welcoming our goal to better connect businesses to their local charitable organizations. To have such a highly recognized and upscale restaurant partner with us, gives us confidence in what we can achieve as a community moving forward. We will be running a pilot with Basil & Mint over the next month, advertising the Smart Meals Initiative, introducing an all-vegan option to their popular 3-course experience. Our Smart Meal proposal was warmly welcomed by Basil & Mint, and they are launching this 3-course vegan option for only $33. Basil & Mint has also committed to donating $1 of every purchase of their Smart Meal offering to the UBCO Food Exchange, to help assist students in need as they return to their studies at UBC Okanagan for the Winter semester. We thank Basil & Mint for their willingness to support the UBCO Food Exchange and their acknowledgment of the financial constraints many students endure during their studies. We will test the logistics of such a campaign and assess the outcomes at the end of September. Our goal is to raise $50 over the next month, meaning 50 Smart Meal purchase at Basil & Mint! 

Come enjoy this delicious 3-course experience and support our cause today at Basil & Mint.
