If you are not familiar with Houston Restaurant Weeks, here is a little 101:

  • Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest annual fundraiser for America’s largest food bank, the Houston Food Bank.
  • It’s a five week dining extravaganza featuring specially priced lunches, brunches and dinners at restaurants from The Woodlands to Galveston, Texas.
  • HRW gives people in Houston an opportunity to experience Houston’s exceptional restaurants while providing much-needed relief for families suffering from hunger.
  • Participating restaurants make donations directly to the Houston Food Bank based upon how many brunches, lunches and dinners they sell during the event. (see below)
