Time for Houston foodies to rejoice! That’s right, it’s Houston Restaurant Weeks 2018! Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) kicks off August 1 and runs through September 3, 2018 and benefits the Houston Food Bank.

We enjoyed last year’s HRW at The Union Kitchen Memorial. Check out our visit here and yes, they are on the list again this year!
Houston Food Bank is the largest source of food for hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties. Each year, the Food Bank feeds 800,000 people through 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other charities.
HRW is a month-long cuisine celebration of notably priced lunches, brunches and dinners at Houston area restaurants. Brunch and lunch are priced at $20 and dinner prices vary between $35 and $45 for three or four courses.
Some restaurants require reservations, so be sure to check the restaurant’s menu page on the HRW website for the reservation and walk-in information.
HRW is planned solely by volunteers, so participating restaurants can donate the full 100% of funds raised to the Houston Food Bank. Participating restaurants make donations directly to the Houston Food Bank based upon how many brunches, lunches and dinners they sell.
Houston Restaurant Weeks was established in 2003 by Cleverley Stone, host of “The Cleverley Show,” a food talk radio program on Houston’s CBS Sports Radio 650/KIKK-AM and she’s also the food segment contributor on Fox 26 Morning News.
So far, HRW has raised more than $12 million to combat hunger in Houston and has provided more than 36 million meals to people in need through the Houston Food Bank.
