Houston Restaurant Weeks website launched for 2014

Posted: Updated:

The month-long annual Houston Restaurant Weeks event, which benefits the Houston Food Bank, begins on Aug. 1, 2014 and the website of participating restaurants and their menus is now available to the public.

The 2014 edition of the website,http://www.houstonrestaurantweeks.com/, launched on Tuesday. The event ends on Sept. 1.

The menus for the participating restaurants are searchable on the website by restaurant name or in an alphabetic ordered list. Reservations are required for anyone who wants to take advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks menus, although many participating restaurants will accept walk-in customers.

Volunteer Cleverley Stone founded Houston Restaurant Weeks in 2003 and the event has raised more than $4.3 million for the Houston Food Bank, which has allowed the organization to provide almost 13 million meals for Houston-area residents who are food insecure. Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest annual fundraising event for the Houston Food Bank, which is the largest food bank in the U.S. in distribution to its network of nearly 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties.

Houston Restaurant Weeks is administered by volunteers and 100 percent of the donations raised from area restaurants go directly to the Food Bank. For a period of 32 days, diners will have the opportunity to order from specially priced multi-course prix-fixe menus. Participating restaurants will make donations to the Houston Food Bank based upon HRW sales.

“As one who reports on restaurants and chefs in our city, I am so grateful for the outpouring of support by Houston’s restaurant industry and diners for Houston Restaurant Weeks, benefiting the Houston Food Bank,” said event founder & chair Cleverley Stone. “Houston Restaurant Weeks has become one of the most anticipated times of the year for local foodies and visitors to our city.”
