Give the Gift of Nuba - Gift Certificates Available Now!

  Do you know a Nuba lover in need of a great gift? While we do offer takeout, we don't recommend purchasing an order of Najib's Special, Mjadra, or Eggplant Stew then wrapping it up for a loved one to open later on at some point during the holiday season. Instead, we suggest grabbing a few Nuba gift certificates! It's far less messy and they have no expiry date.   Gift certificates can be purchased at all of our locations in denominations of $25 or $50.

Growing Chefs' mission is to teach children, families, and the community about healthy food and healthy food systems. For every feature menu item you order at Nuba, one dollar will go directly to funding their Classroom Gardening Program, which takes place in 43 classrooms, and gets kids excited about growing, cooking, and eating healthy food. Over 140 volunteer chefs engage the students with games, lessons, and activities focusing on plant growth, local and urban agriculture, sustainability, and nutrition. The students even get to grow and harvest their own vegetables, which chefs then show them how to cook delicious, healthy meals with. So come on out to Nuba in Gastown to EAT while helping support EAT. GIVE. GROW.
