Restaurants of Love Food Give Food: Dine with Us

Restaurants of Love Food, Give Food

Running for the months of April and May, Love Food Give Food unites food lovers from across the city into taking action against hunger by doing what they do best – eating out. By enjoying a meal at the delicious and diverse participating restaurants, you can take a small action and make a big difference to get child hunger off the table.

Each restaurant will select a special menu item or more and donate $1 from that item to support Action Against Hunger’s fight against malnutrition. In other words, you’ll be a hunger hero!
