Dining Out and Giving Back Has Never Been Easier
Metropolitan Washington Summer Restaurant Week Participants to Benefit Capital Area Food Bank
Summer Restaurant Week hosted by Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) is about more than just good eating; it’s an opportunity to dine out and give back to those in need in the metropolitan Washington community. Over Summer Restaurant Week from Monday, August 14 to Sunday, August 20, RAMW launches a new initiative designed to raise awareness about hunger and food accessibility in the capital region. Throughout Restaurant Week, participating locations will team up with the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) to raise funds to help hundreds of thousands of people gain access to good, healthy food every day. Many restaurants have opted to donate a portion of proceeds earned during Restaurant Week to CAFB. Each dollar donated will provide more than two full meals for someone in need in the region.
Participating restaurants are marked with a round CAFB logo and can be viewed, along with the full list of 250 Restaurant Week locations, at
Summer Restaurant Week sponsors include Events DC, OpenTable, Fine European Wines, 94.7 FRESH FM, LIFEWTR, and American Express.
Monday, August 14 – Sunday, August 20
