Local Pour in The Woodlands is one of the restaurants participating in 2016 Houston Restaurant Weeks starting Aug. 1. Houston Restaurant Weeks

A handful of restaurants in The Woodlands will partake in the 2016 Houston Restaurant Weeks event from Aug. 1 through Labor Day.

Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest annual fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank, the largest food bank in the U.S. HRW event chair Cleverley Stone said more than 225 restaurants participate in the Greater Houston area, and the fundraiser has continued to grow since it was initiated by a private citizen in 2003. Fourteen restaurants will be participating this year in The Woodlands.

“Last year we served over 350,000 diners,” Stone said. “Many visited restaurants for the first time. It’s a fun way to discover restaurants at an affordable price.”

Stone said participating restaurants offer a pre-selected lunch or brunch menu for $20 with $3 from each meal sent to the Houston Food Bank. Restaurants also offer a pre-selected dinner menu for $25, $35 or $45, with $4, $5 or $7 of the cost donated to the Houston Food Bank.

Participating restaurants in The Woodlands include Americas, Amerigo’s Grille, Crisp Wine-Beer-Eatery, CRU Food and Wine Bar, Del Frisco’s Grille, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, Grotto, Hubbell & Hudson Bistro, Kirby’s Prime Steakhouse, Kona Grill, Local Pour, Morton’s Grille, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille and TGI Friday’s.

For participating restaurants in Montgomery and Galveston counties, the Houston Food Bank will send fundraising proceeds to their respective food banks.

“The Houston Food Bank will funnel [donations] to other representative food banks,” Stone said. “The food bank gets donations to feed hungry people—that’s the best thing about this. Secondly, it’s a boost to the restaurant industry. August used to be the slowest month for restaurants, now it’s the second busiest for participating restaurants.”
