2013-Houston-Restaurant-WeeksHouston Restaurant Weeks has announced its return for its 10th year, a month-long food odyssey run by volunteers, in which 100 percent of the proceeds raised from area restaurants go directly to the Houston Food Bank. For 33 days, participating restaurants in the Greater Houston Area as well as in outlying communities will prepare a prix-fixe menu, in which a percentage of the cost goes to the Houston Food Bank. A $20 two-or-­three course lunch generates a $3 donation; A $35 three-or-four course dinner generates a $5 donations; A $45 three­-or-four course dinner generates a $7 donation.

Last year alone Houston Restaurant Weeks raised over $1.22 million for the Houston Food Bank, making it the largest single fundraising event for the Food Bank and the largest restaurant weeks of its kind in the United States. In addition to the ever-expanding contribution made to the Houston Food Bank, Houston Restaurant Weeks has grown to include restaurants in the Greater Houston Area as well as in outlying communities.
