EVENT CANCELLED

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're sad to say that The Meal will not be taking place on Sunday, April 26th, 2020.

Executive Chef Todd Pylypiw of the DoubleTree by Hilton London has outdone himself again this year! Check out the spectacular menus which includes the reception and sit down dinner. Join us on Sunday, April 26th at 5:00 pm for the taste experience of the year.

For the first time in The Meal’s history, in addition to our regular menu, we have added an optional Vegan menu. The Vegan menu option must be ordered at the time of the purchase of the ticket(s).

For the 38th consecutive year, a group of the most talented Chefs in London and area will once again donate their time to prepare and serve a feast of culinary delights to approximately 400 guests in support of Diabetes Canada. Known simply as The Meal, this fundraiser will be hosted once again at the DoubleTree by Hilton London on Sunday, April 26th, 2020.

Our co-emcees for the evening will be Mr. London himself, Bill Brady, Julie Atchison and Nick Paparella of Bell Media.

Prior to dinner, there will be a reception including a martini luge created from an ice sculpture serving as a centerpiece. New this year, we are thrilled to have Anderson Craft Ales as one of our sponsors. They will have a beer “flight deck” set up during the reception that will be sure to pair perfectly with the over-the-top charcuterie board, new this year. During dinner, their beer will be available at the bar.

A scrumptious sit down dinner follows and includes red and white wines especially selected to complement the menu.

Don’t be disappointed. Tickets go quickly and in past years, it has been a SOLD OUT evening.

Tickets are all inclusive and include the reception and dinner. Tickets are $200 per guest with an $85 tax receipt.
