Theo’s Greek Restaurant in Penticton, British Columbia opened in 1976, and for over thirty years, we have had the pleasure to support and lead cultural and education initiatives in our community and beyond.

In 1998 we were honoured to receive the prestigious National Post award for “exemplifying the best in business and arts partnerships in all of Canada.” Theo’s OliveUs Education Initiative was founded in 2009 with the goal to expand our commitment to education both locally and internationally by creating programs that promote engaged, meaningful learning that enable learners of all ages to connect with the world they live in.

Visit our projects and if you too would like to lend a hand, that would be great for all of us.
