Dine Out and Do Good with Houston Restaurant Weeks

One of the most anticipated food events of the year, Houston Restaurant Weeks, is back after a year of eagerly waiting! This food-filled event will run from August 1st through Labor Day, which means you have 34 days of meals and raising money for The Houston Food Bank. With a growing list of 250 restaurants expected to participate serving specially priced multi-course prix fixe menus that include brunch, lunch and dinner, you’ll never run out of places to dine. For every 45$ dinner, Houston restaurants donate 7$, which produces 21 meals! The vast amount of locations and selections of menu items along with the number of meals one purchase can produce makes it easy to help those in need. Check out my segment on KRPC where I highlight some of the participating restaurants, here!

Houston Restaurant Weeks was founded in 2003 by a volunteer Cleverley Stone, and it is the single largest fundraiser of its kind in the United States and benefits Houston Food Bank. Run 100 percent by volunteers, 100 percent of donations from participating restaurants will go directly to Houston Food Bank. Participating restaurants will make donations based on their Houston Restaurant Weeks sales.

Starting now, patrons of Houston restaurants can visit their website to view the thriving list of restaurants that have graciously devoted their time take part in a fundraiser, along with the special menus. As more participants for the fundraiser roll in, restaurants will be added to the website until August 1st. From restaurants of elegant taste and prestigious entrees, to a friendly atmosphere with down-home cooking of a neighborhood restaurant, diners can sample Houston’s culinary scene and all it has to offer. Most locations will accept walk-ins; however, some will require a reservation.
