To mark “the sweetest day of the year” aka National Ice Cream Day, SkipTheDishes will be giving out free scoops of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Canadian cities, including here in Vancouver.

The food delivery biz will have a “Chill Zone” truck at Lot 531 on Cordova (near Waterfront Station) where they’ll be dispensing the free scoops at an interactive activation that will include a photo backdrop and comfy chairs for chillaxing.
