Support the 16th Annual Dining Out for Life

You dine out. You like to volunteer and support good causes. And once again this year, you can do both in one evening.

On Thursday, April 26th, nearly 140 restaurants in the DC area will be participating in the sixteenth annual Dining Out for Life event, benefitting Food & Friends. Restaurants donate anywhere from 25 to 110 percent of their profits from the evening to the local charity that provides meals and counseling to clients in the region who are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer or other life-challenging illnesses.

If you want to do more to help Food & Friends, sign up to be a Restaurant Ambassador. You’ll help spread the word about the event, greet and thank diners on the 26th and raise funds.

Last year’s Dining Out for Life raise more than $240,000 for Food & Friends. For more information about the event, go to

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.
