Thank you for your support of
Houston Restaurant Weeks 2013!

We're working to end hunger in Houston.

Thank you, Houston, for a great Houston Restaurant Weeks 2013 and the effort to end hunger in Houston.

Thank you to our fabulous sponsors who made donations to the Houston Food Bank or provided much needed pro bono services to make the HRW engine run. See their logos and links in the right column of this page. Please thank them and patronize their businesses if you have a chance.

Thank you to all of the extremely hard working restaurant employees for serving hundreds of thousands of HRW meals to diners in August. Please see all the restaurants listed below. Please thank them if you have a chance.

Thank you to the 186 restaurants that chose to support the Houston Food Bank and the effort to end hunger in Houston by participating in HRW 2013. They will be sending their donation checks to the HFB by October 31. Please thank them for participating in HRW 2013 and dine with them year-round.

Thank you to the Houston Food Bank for their time, attention and support during HRW. (HRW is put on by volunteers to benefit the HFB. HRW is not an in-house HFB event.)

Thank you to Houston's media community that provided the coverage that HRW needed to be successful.

And thank you to our dear diners. This year you dined out like never before. A portion of your dining dollars will be used in the fight to end hunger in Houston. There would be no HRW without you. Thank You!

Very truly yours,

Houston Restaurant Weeks 2013 Volunteers 




What Is Houston Restaurant Weeks?

Established in 2003, HRW is a fun-filled dining event benefiting the Houston Food Bank. Held simultaneously in 186 restaurants in the greater Houston area, Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest single annual fundraiser for the largest food bank in the nation. This annual event is held in August. This year's dates were: August 1 through September 2, 2013 (Labor Day).

Houston Restaurant Weeks also supports other area food banks through the Houston Food Bank

Donations from Nonno Tony's and Salt Water Grill in Galveston will be donated to the Galveston County Food Bank.

Donations from Montgomery County restaurants will go to the Montgomery County Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank has three Partner Distribution Organizations (PDOs): the Brazos Valley Food Bank, the Galveston County Food Bank and the Montgomery County Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank provides food to these smaller food banks, which in turn distribute the food to hunger relief charities in a portion of Houston Food Bank's service area. The Houston Food Bank certifies that PDOs meet Feeding America standards.

Founded and chaired by volunteer Cleverley Stone, HRW is planned by volunteers so that 100% of funds raised can be donated to the Houston Food Bank. 

If you have questions, or would like to participate in our 2013 event as a restaurant or sponsor, please contact us: Cleverley@HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com.
