Austin Restaurant Week is the city’s favorite event celebrating the city’s incredible culinary scene. For five years the event has strived to create a fun and creative opportunity for restaurants to showcase their menus for both the spring and fall seasons, and to give attendees an opportunity to re-visit an old favorite or a buzz-worthy newcomer. Austin Restaurant Week: Dine Out, Do Good.
Meals on Wheels and More has returned as the charity beneficiary this Spring, and every Austin Restaurant Week meal donates $2 directly to Meals on Wheels and More to support their programs. In other words, every time that you eat out during Austin Restaurant Week, you are creating a meal for a Meals on Wheels and More meals recipient!
“When folks take part in Austin Restaurant Week, they make a positive difference in the lives of the homebound older adults served by Meals on Wheels and More. Our agency offers life-sustaining services to thousands of our Central Texas neighbors in need. Meals on Wheels, our signature program, provides hot, nutritious meals delivered by dedicated volunteers right to our clients’ doors. But we also offer a wide-range of other vital services designed to keep the people we serve living in their own home instead of in a nursing home. We are so very grateful to the organizers of Austin Restaurant Week for their incredible support of our mission and for putting compassion into action! Since 2011, Austin Restaurant Week has raised more than $72,000 to help us help those we serve. Thank you, ARW, for putting compassion into action!” Dan Pruett, President & CEO, Meals on Wheels and More
