Dine out for a great cause as part of the Houston Restaurant Weeks fundraiser, running from August 1- September 2. The event was established in 2003 and benefits the Houston Food Bank. A number of fine dining establishments in the Greater Houston area are involved in the event.
Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest dining charity event in Houston. It was founded by current chair Cleverley Stone. Volunteers plan the entire event to ensure that 100% of the funds raised are donated to the Houston Food Bank. The amount of each restaurant’s donation is decided by the number of brunches, lunches and dinners they sell during the month-long event.
The Houston Good Bank has three Partner Distribution Organizations (PDOs):
Brazos Valley Food Bank
Galveston County Food Bank
Montgomery County Food Bank
These smaller PDOs receive food from the Houston Food Bank so that they can distribute it to hunger relief charities within Houston Food Bank’s service area. The Houston Food Bank certifies that all of their PDOs meet Feeding America Standards.
Additionally, 100 percent of the proceeds raised by Galveston and Montgomery area restaurants are given directly to the Galveston County Food Bank and Montgomery County Food Bank respectively.
While diners are not asked for any donations while dining during Houston Restaurant Weeks, they are welcome to make a donation as part of the Text 2 Give option. Text HGB to 20222 and your donation of $10 will automatically go directly to the Houston Food Bank.
