The 15th Annual Dining out for Life on March 10th is right around the corner. More than 150 restaurants across the DC-area will donate portions of the day’s proceeds to Food & Friends. And all you have to do is eat at one of the restaurants.

For those who don’t know, Food & Friends delivers meals to DC residents who are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other debilitating illnesses. Last year, they raised $27o,000 from Dining out for Life. Participating restaurants can donate anywhere from 25 percent to 100 percent of the day’s proceeds. And if you can’t dine out that day, you can always give a donation.

Some of the restaurants donating 100 percent of their proceeds include Ristorante Tosca, Posto, Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse and Freddie’s Beach Bar & Restaurant in Arlington, which is donating 110 percent of the day’s proceeds. For a complete list of participating restaurants, click here.

Marissa was born and bred in New Jersey, but moved to DC for undergrad at GWU (Go Colonials, go!), fell in love with the District and learned that there was life and civilization beyond New York City. She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am. Simply put, she loves all things food. You can also read about why she loves DC. Follow her on Twitter and email her at mbialecki (at)
