As Texas restaurants enter their third month of business since reopening in early May, more than 150 restaurants in the Greater Houston area have already signed up to participate in the annual Houston Restaurant Weeks, a monthlong fundraising event for the Houston Food Bank that runs Aug. 1-Sept. 7.

Participating restaurants will offer specially priced brunch, lunch and dinner menus in which a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Houston Food Bank. While last year's fundraiser generated $3-$7 of donations per purchase, participating restaurants in this year's event will donate $1 per meal, which generates three meals for the Houston Food Bank.

"Due to the effects of [COVID-19] on the restaurant industry, this year the donation from restaurants participating in HRW 2020 will be $1 per meal," the event's website reads. "Most restaurants are offering their HRW menus to-go/curbside and for delivery this year, [please] check with the restaurant ahead of time to verify."

The first round of restaurant signups was released July 17 and will continue to be added to until Aug. 1.
