Already scheduled at a record-breaking three weeks, many of the restaurants will be adding over two additional weeks of the dinner (and sometimes lunch) prix fixe menus, through Labor Day on Sept. 6. Founder and chair of Houston Restaurant Week Cleverley Stone says the extension was unplanned and due to demand from diners and restaurant owners alike.
The complete list of restaurants participating in the extension is available beginning this weekend at houstonrestaurantweek.com.
Houston Restaurant Week is the city's largest charity dining event held in multiple locations in the greater Houston area over a three week period.
August 1-21, 2010 restaurants offer a special 3 course gourmet dinner (some restaurants will offer 4 courses) for $35 per person and donate $5 from each HRW dinner sold to the Houston Food Bank. Some restaurants will also offer a 2 course lunch for $20 per person (some restaurants will offer 3 courses), and they will donate $3 per HRW lunch sold to the Houston Food Bank.
Each diner at a participating restaurant will provide 15 meals for a hungry child or adult in southeast Texas. Those meals are provided each week to 137,000 individuals who turn to food pantries, senior centers, soup kitchens and shelters for nourishment.
Our mission is to raise funds to fight hunger in Houston. 100% of donations raised goes to the Houston Food Bank. In 2009 HRW raised $242,000 to fight hunger in Houston. Our goal in 2010 is to serve 50,000 diners in 21 days raising $250,000 for the Houston Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank is the largest source of free and low-cost food for hungry people in 18 southeast Texas counties. A network of 400 charities, feeding a total of 137,000 people each week, provides more than 60 million pounds of food and prepared meals annually. Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from Herzstein Center, a 73,000 square-foot warehouse, and hot meals are prepared and distributed from Keegan Center, a 15,000 square-foot industrial kitchen. In 2011, the Food Bank’s warehouse operations will be moved to a much larger facility near the East Freeway and East Loop. Additional community services range from nutrition education to assistance with food stamp applications and hands-on job training. Red Barrels offer a convenient way for grocery shoppers to donate nonperishables for their neighbors in need. The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network. The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 120 million pounds of food by 2018. Visit www.HoustonFoodBank.org for more information.
