HRW 2013 - TShirts-Caps-Aprons - Sales Flyer-553x705.PNG

 

 

HRW is planned by volunteers so that 100% of funds raised can be donated to the Houston Food Bank.

"Houston Restaurant Weeks gives people in Houston an opportunity to experience Houston's exceptional restaurants while providing much-needed relief for families suffering from hunger," said Brian Greene, CEO of the Houston Food Bank. "We are grateful to once again be the beneficiary of this incredible event."

Participating restaurants make donations to the Food Bank based upon how many brunches, lunches and dinners they sell during the event.

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.


HOW IT WORKS - HOW DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN HOUSTON RESTAURANT WEEKS?

Restaurants will offer the HRW meals every day they are open from August 1 through September 2, 2013.

To dine during HRW, view the menus on this site and decide where you would like to dine.

Make your restaurant reservations by calling or emailing them.
Important: When making your reservations, be sure to tell them that you would like the Houston Restaurant Weeks special menu. This will let the restaurant know to make a donation to the Food Bank from the proceeds of your meal.

If using OpenTable.com to make your reservation, please write 'Request HRW Menu' in the comments field.

Please arrive on time for your reservation. Pay your check at the end of the meal, just like any other dining experience. The restaurant will make a donation to the Food Bank based upon the price of your meal (see graph above).

Diners are not solicited for donations. However if you would like to make a $10 donation to the Food Bank, simply text HRW to 20222.

HRW is promoted as a 'Reservation Only' event, however restaurants may accept walk-ins at their discretion.
