HOUSTON (CW39) Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) return of diners beginning August 1st through Labor Day, September 5th. That’s 36 days of meals and deals raising necessary funds for the Houston Food Bank.

Popular local restaurants are expected to participate by serving specially priced, multi-course prix fixe menus including brunch, lunch, and dinner, available for dine-in and take-out. For brunch and lunch, restaurants can offer either two or three courses, and for dinner, three or four courses. Restaurants from the Galleria, Inner Loop, West Houston, East End, Midtown, Downtown, Sugar Land to Galveston and The Woodlands will be participating.

The month-long event raises more money for the Houston Food Bank than any other fundraiser and, to date, has raised $17.6 million, which equates to 52.8 million meals that have gone to feed those that are food insecure in the region.

The Cleverley Stone Foundation, named after the founder of HRW, Cleverley Stone, predicts that this year’s event will have a positive financial impact on the restaurant industry and beyond. It comes at a time when rising inflation is impacting the ability of many to adequately feed themselves and their families. The Foundation and the Houston Food bank rely on the support of the industry, individuals, and corporations to make HRW a successful fundraising effort and fill pantries.

HRW is pleased to announce that Tellepsen, a full-service construction partner to so many, is a new sponsor for 2022.
