What’s better than pancakes? O’Canada Pancakes.

For the third year in a row, Ricky’s Family Style Restaurants are offering patrons $1.50 O’Canada Pancakes from June 24 to July 1 when you order before 11 a.m.

All proceeds from the pancakes sold will be donated to the Breakfast Club of Canada (BCC), whose mission is to “nourish children’s potential by making sure that as many of them have access to a healthy morning meal before school as possible”.

Ricky’s has raised $250,000 since their partnership began in 2015, according to a press release.
