Meat the Butcher is officially open for business!
The butchery – located at 11 White Oak Dr E. – held its grand opening event Saturday afternoon from 12-8p.m., with all food and beer proceeds going to the Algoma Autism Foundation.
Meat the Butcher General Manager Christie Albidone told SaultOnline she decided to partner up with the AAF because of the recent cuts the Ford government has made to autism services.
“There’s not enough funding for any of the organizations out here really,” she said. “We can’t just always rely on the government, we’ve got to team up together as a community and help each other out where we can.”
