One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright
In less than two weeks we will all have the opportunity to devote our attention to eating while making a difference. Houston’s annual Restaurant Week, which runs August 1-21, will allow Houstonians to combine two of the things we are known for: food and philanthropy. The 2010 Houston Restaurant Week will feature over 100 restaurants including the newly open to some of the most popular “oldie but goodie” eateries. Whether you have been cravin’ Haven, want to say “hello” to Cielo or are thinking of diving into Max’s-there is something for you!
All participating restaurants will offer a set three-course dinner menu for $35 per person, with $5 of each dinner being donated to the Houston Food Bank. As a special treat, participating restaurants are also offering a set two-course lunch menu for $20, with $3 of each lunch going to the food bank.
The Houston Food Bank, which provides meals to roughly 137, 000 individuals each week in 18 southeast Texas counties, has found itself in a precarious situation due to fewer personal and corporate donations. So what does that mean? That means Houston needs YOU to participate and do your part to dine on a dime and help stamp out hunger!
