The Chickenburger

On Sunday, March 10, the Northwood Community celebrated The Chickenburger’s 84th anniversary.

All proceeds from this celebration were graciously donated to support the Northwood Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the lives of community members.

Residents and tenants at Northwood, along with locals, had the pleasure of tasting the mouth-watering flavours of The Chickenburger’s renowned burgers while contributing to a meaningful cause.

Since opening in 1940, The Chickenburger has held a cherished spot in the hearts of Nova Scotians, delighting generations with its delicious food and retro atmosphere. For many, a visit to The Chickenburger also evokes nostalgia, making it not just a restaurant but a place to gather and reminisce over burgers and milkshakes.

Ann Bauld, a resident of Northwood, is filled with fond memories whenever thoughts of The Chickenburger cross her mind.:

I grew up in Hilden, four miles from the Halifax side of Truro. My dad worked in Halifax and knew of “The Chick.” When I was 10, we took the bus to Halifax for the day. On the way home the bus we stopped at The Chickenburger for our supper. It was my first time there.

After that, I delightfully went back several times and always had the chickenburger and a vanilla milkshake. I fed the juke box every time even though I had all the songs at home. I wish I could get all that money back…Ha!

My boyfriend and I always went there too. We married and had 4 kids. We always took them there on the last day of school. Now, they have children of their own who love to go there too.

I lived in Nova Scotia for 78 years but now I live in London, ON with my daughter. When I fly home, my first stop off the plane is The Chickenburger and my last stop on my way back. My daughter has 5 children and they all come home for 2 weeks in August.  Their first stop off the plane – same as mine – is The Chickenburger. The tradition continues.  We LOVE IT!

The partnership between The Chickenburger and Northwood is a testament to the power of collaboration and philanthropy. Northwood extends its heartfelt gratitude to The Chickenburger for their generous support, which enables the Foundation to continue its impactful work within the community.

Through these donations, the Northwood Foundation aims to uplift and enrich the lives of in our Northwood Community. By celebrating this special day, customers not only savoured the flavours of The Chickenburger but also contribute to a cause that makes a tangible difference in people’s lives.

We can’t do what we do without you. Every donation, big or small, helps us make everyone’s aging experience the best it can be.
