About Rendez-Vous Salus

Later this summer, we’ll be making special deliveries to supporters like you with Rendez-Vous Salus.  Working with friends in the Ottawa culinary community like Beckta and others, we’ve curated an exquisite selection of tastes that are perfect for these hazy summer evenings. Luxurious cheeses, savoury charcuterie, refreshing sparkling wines, and other treats await you.

Whether you share your Rendez-Vous Salus ‘basket’ on your own, with a partner, or with your social bubble, you will help support individuals living with severe mental illness, and you’ll also help to support members of the restaurant community who do so much for charities in Ottawa.

How it Works

Supporting Rendez-Vous Salus is easy!

    1. Decide who you’re going to share your treats with. Will you savour it on your own? Will you celebrate a special moment with a loved one? Will you plan a small social distancing gathering with your social bubble? Or will you invite friends to order their own baskets and schedule a virtual visit via Zoom (we can help with this!) It’s all up to you!
    2. Your basket will be delivered to your preferred address (Greater Ottawa/Gatineau area, please) on Thursday, September 24th.  You will receive an email with the approximate delivery time window on Monday, September 21st.
    3. Interested in learning more about the wine and other tastes in your basket? We’ll send you a link to view a special video with messages from Ottawa Chef Stephen Beckta and others as you enjoy the contents of your delivery.
    4. In early October, we’ll send you a tax receipt for the receiptable portion of your purchase, and you’ll have our immense thanks for supporting Rendez-Vous Salus.
