Giving Back

We believe we have a social and moral obligation to help improve the quality of life for all those we serve. By giving back and supporting the needs in our community we’ll not only help those around us but we will also have greater societal impact.

We are called to feed the hungry


The need for food in our community is greater than ever in these difficult economic times and we believe restaurants are on the frontlines of feeding people in need.

Because of this, we helped establish the Rochester Community Food Relief Center, an organization that receives donations from commercial kitchens throughout the Rochester region and provides food to the needy in our community.

In addition we support the Salvation Army, Family Services and Rochester Area Boys and Girls Club by providing hundreds of nutritious freshly prepared meals every day.

God Bless our Troops and God Bless America


Our military and veterans make the ultimate sacrifice each and every day and go into harms way to protect all of our freedom. It is with sincere honor and respect that Powers Ventures is blessed with the opportunity to give back to our men and women in the armed forces and those that have selflessly served our country.

Since 2006, the Canadian Honker has been proud to support and donate a breakfast feast to more than 12,000 current military and veteran’s for Rochester’s community gathering honoring their service and commitment to our country.

Each year more than 600 veterans and family members gather veterans and their families. (Averaging 600 per year…. brings their total to approximately 12,000) community breakfast that honors Veterans. This past July, they donated food and their service to feed more than 6,000 Minnesota National Guard troops and their families before being deployed to Kuwait and Afghanistan. They also sponsor the grand and spectacular fireworks display on the 4th of July for the city of Rochester…. knowing the connection to honor those that have served our country.

Since 2008, we have been blessed to be a part of the Serving Our Troops effort showing appreciation to the Minnesota National Guard members and their families through a delicious steak dinner.

We are also a proud sponsor of the Honor Flight Network whose goal is to transport American’s veterans to Washington D.C. to visit memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. With top priority given to America’s most senior heroes-survivors of World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War.
