The event runs from Aug. 15-Sept. 2, during which patrons can dine at more than 100 participating restaurants in the Austin area. A portion of proceeds from each meal will benefit the food bank.
Most participating restaurants offer prix fixe meals—$20 for lunch or brunch, which provides 12 meals for neighbors in need; a $35 dinner option, which provides 20 meals; and a $50 dinner option, which provides 32 meals.
Reservations are recommended but not required.
Some establishments may also offer a drink option. A $12 cocktail will result in a $2 donation to the food bank, which provides eight meals, and each glass of wine or beer will result in a $1 donation, or four meals.
The Central Texas Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Central Texas, serving nearly 50,000 children, seniors and families across 21 counties every week.
More than a dozen Northwest Austin eateries and breweries, mapped below, are participating in the fundraising event.
