Restaurant Week Columbus is the perfect opportunity to dine at the city's finest restaurants for a great cause. Each Restaurant Week, a $5,000 donation is presented to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank on behalf of the participating restaurants, sponsors and diners.
"Every $1 donated enables the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to distribute $11 worth of groceries. So, Restaurant Week Columbus has a huge impact," said Yolanda Owens of the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
"Besides the contribution that did so much to get the word out about the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, it is great to know that premier restaurants support the cause - and it is great for diners as well. We love being affiliated with the event and are thrilled it will happen again."
Restaurant Week Columbus has donated over $50,000 to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank or $400,000 worth of groceries to date.
