A burger of the month has helped support Avery's Legacy.

Avery's Legacy is an initiative that creates and donates child loss bereavement boxes for families.

Dr. Jody Carrington from Olds was the guest chef with Cilantro and Chive in Lacombe in September thanks to owners Rieley and Kim Kay.

Carrington created the "eat your feelings" poutine burger. $2 from every burger sale last month supported Avery's Legacy.

She says Avery's Legacy opens a conversation for grieving parents and families.

Throughout the month of September, central Albertans ate 1152 burgers and raised $2304 for the cause.

Cathy Decker - Founder of Avery's Legacy and Avery's mom - says it takes a village to raise a child and a village to support a grieving heart.

The $23-hundred dollars raised will help assemble 23 boxes to give to grieving parents of children aged neonate to 17 years old in the Calgary and central Alberta area.

Decker says this will also help them expand the reach of Avery's Legacy in central Alberta.

Avery's Legacy has given out 50 boxes in the last 17 months - including 8 in September and 2 in October.

Decker says they created Avery's Legacy as a way to honour Avery's memory and support others during times of grief.

Cathy and her husband Ryan suffered the unimaginable in March of 2017 when their 13-month old daughter Avery laid down for a nap at her day-home and never woke up.
