Hey Texas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year — August is the month for restaurant weeks! Long-standing weeks like Houston and San Antonio’s Culinaria will be joined by Austin’s new city-wide initiative Feed it Forward. With over 450 restaurants participating between three of Texas’s largest cities, the options are endless. From fine dining to good ol’ at-home country cooking and options for dine-in or to-go, there will be something for you!
Starting on August 1, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio area restaurants will be offering ways to give back to their communities just by ordering in-house dining, delivery, to-go, or curbside pick-up.
In Austin, place an order from any participating restaurant and add the $5 Feed It Forward menu item before you check out. The donation will go directly to Central Texas Food Bank.
For Houston and San Antonio, participating restaurants will be offering 3- to 4-course meals of brunch and lunch for $20 and dinner for $35-45 which offer the perfect opportunity to enjoy some of your favorites or trying something new! A portion of the proceeds from each meal purchased will go to their respective benefiting organizations of choice.
We always look forward to restaurant weeks and our advice to anyone wanting to participate is to plan ahead and if you’re ready to venture out, make your reservations early! A lot of restaurants will take walk-ins but to be safe we suggest calling ahead to reserve your seat or place an order for delivery or pick up.
