What is Houston Restaurant Weeks?

Houston Restaurant Weeks in the largest annual fundraiser for America's largest food bank.

The event includes Harris, Galveston and Montgomery County restaurants. One hundred percent of the donations raised from restaurants in these counties will go directly to their local area food banks. The Galveston County Food Bank and Montgomery County Food Bank are part of the Houston Food Bank's Partner Distribution Organizations (PDOs). 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 HFB's service area. The Houston Food Bank certifies that their PDOs meet Feeding America standards.
