Bring your appetite to the Memorial District for Houston Restaurant Weeks! This fabulous annual event showcases meals at restaurants throughout southeast Texas, including many establishments right here in the Memorial District. This year, Houston Restaurant Weeks runs from August 1 to September 7.
Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest annual fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank, whose mission is to provide food for better lives. It is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation's food bank network. Participating establishments give $1 per meal to the Houston Food Bank. In 2019, Houston Restaurant Weeks provided more than 104 million meals in 18 counties of southeast Texas.
This year, most participating restaurants have special Houston Restaurant Weeks menus for delivery and takeout. Call participating restaurants before you visit. Verify the days of the week for Houston Restaurant Weeks meal services. Walk-in services might be available, and reservations are not always necessary. Still, it is a good idea to call in advance. Because of COVID-19 concerns, Houston Restaurant Weeks establishments also offer safe delivery and takeout options.
Contact information for each participating restaurant is available on the Houston Restaurant Weeks website. When you call, remember to mention that you want the Houston Restaurant Weeks special menu. That way, the restaurant knows to donate to the Houston Food Bank from the proceeds of your meal.
