Dine for a Cause in Midtown Houston During Houston Restaurant Weeks


Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) is the perfect time to eat well in Midtown Houston while raising money for a wonderful cause. HRW happens to be the largest fundraiser for America’s largest food bank – the Houston Food Bank.

Take Houston Restaurant Weeks from August 1st to September 3rd as an opportunity to try out a cuisine or interesting spot you haven’t yet, all while supporting meals for those in need. Consider this: A two or three course brunch during HRW can translate to nine meals for the food bank. That’s a huge impact from such a simple and enjoyable experience.

When there’s so much good food and giving to go around, it’s a no-brainer to get in on the fun. Most of the participating restaurants have a $45 three-course dinner and $20 two-course lunch or brunch.
