MAP: Here are the 9 Katy-area restaurants participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks 2018

Nine Katy-area restaurants will participate in Houston Restaurant Weeks 2018, which runs Aug. 1-Sept. 3. The annual event seeks to raise money for the Houston Food Bank, which in turn uses the money to support its own operations and about 600 other food banks in Greater Houston.

Andrew Howell, director of operations for Grazia Italian Kitchen, one of the restaurants participating in the event, said the restaurant is glad to be able to contribute to the communities it has locations in, including Katy.

“We are just grateful to be part of the communities,” Howell said. “We are just grateful to give back.”

Diners can participate by buying meals at each of the locations listed below. Brunches and lunches are $20 per person. Dinners cost $35 or $45 and include three to four courses. For each $20 meal sold, $3 goes to the food bank, while $5 is donated for each $35 meal and $7 is donated for each $45 meal. Each dollar raised funds three meals for food-insecure people in the community, according to the Houston Restaurant Weeks website.

Over its history the annual event—which began in 2003 according to its founder, Cleverley Stone—has raised more than $12.2 million and provided more than 36 million meals, according to the Houston Restaurant Weeks website.
