Houston Restaurant Weeks is the perfect opportunity to get in and sample some of the finest food Houston has to offer. Though most diners are thinking of the multi-course dinners available, foodies need to know there are also brunch and lunch options included in the city’s largest “for charity” dining event.
Over 205 participants are slated to participate in the fundraising effort with their multi-course specially priced meals. Several of these restaurants serve brunch, lunch and dinner while some serve a combination of these or just dinner.
In 2013, Houston Restaurant Weeks raised over $1.22 million dollars making it the largest restaurant weeks of its kind in the U.S.
Information on participating restaurants and who serves brunch, lunch or dinner options can be found at www.houstonrestaurantweeks.com. Prices start at $25 starting for some lunch and brunch options and $35 to $45 for brunch and dinners choices.
The highly anticipated Houston Restaurant Weeks was established in 2003 and benefits the Houston Food Bank and their three Partner Distribution Organizations: the Brazos Valley Food Bank, the Galveston County Food Bank and the Montgomery County Food Bank. Founded and chaired by volunteer Cleverley Stone, Houston Restaurant Weeks 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."
