Q: How does DFW Restaurant Week benefit local charities?

A: Participating restaurants donate ten (10) percent of the price of each meal to the North Texas Food Bank in the Dallas area or Lena Pope in Tarrant County to help local children and families in need. This year, during this challenging time when many businesses are struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic, the charities are kindly taking a lower donation percentage, as a way to give back to our local restaurant friends who have generously supported them over the years. Diners are encouraged to make additional donations to these beloved charities if they are able to do so.
