Support Local – Nurse on Fire Creations

If you’ve stopped by Irie Jerk recently then you’ve seen the new additions to our decor. Barrie artist, Marsha, is showcasing her amazing work for all of our customers to view and purchase. If you like what you see stop on by and grab some amazing local art.



The Irie Jerk has partnered with FIFE 4 LIFE, a pay-it-forward food program that allows our customers to buy any one of our dishes for locals in need of a freshly cooked meal. These times are tough for everyone but even worse for some. We are extremely grateful to be able to take part in this initiative and give back to a community that has done so much for us already!
