Dine Out Against Hunger is a restaurant-based fundraiser to help fight hunger on Staten Island. Over 125 participating Staten Island restaurants pledge to give 20% of their food bill (excluding the bar bill) to Project Hospitality, an interfaith effort sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, and caring for people with HIV/AIDS.
This one-day event is set for:
Thursday, April 23, 2015
People of the community can support this effort simply by going out to eat at a participating restaurant on Thursday, April 23, 2015. Co-workers can dine out at breakfast, lunch and/or dinner together; friends and families can dine out in the evening.
Project Hospitality helps the homeless, who struggle daily to find enough to eat, and the working poor, struggling to meet both rent and food costs. Project Hospitality is able to offer food, shelter, and hope during these challenging times with generous contributions from caring individuals, community organizations and businesses.
