“Save the date” for annual culinary event and join the fight against hunger
Three Square Food Bank announced today the return of Las Vegas Restaurant Week taking place June 18-29. Now in its 12th installment, this one-of-a-kind event gives restaurants throughout Southern Nevada the unique opportunity to give back through the culinary arts.
Three Square encourages restaurant owners and chefs to “save the date” and register for the 12-day culinary event. Registrations will begin April 9. Interested restaurants should contact Three Square’s Kari Goldberg at 702.644.3663 ext. 332, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
During Las Vegas Restaurant Week, participating restaurants across Southern Nevada develop prix-fixe menus – some offering breakfast, lunch and/or dinner – at price points ranging from $20 to $80. A fixed portion of the meal’s cost will directly support Three Square’s mission of pursuing a hunger-free community.
“This 12-day event showcases the strength of our community and what can be accomplished when different industries come together,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “Las Vegas Restaurant Week allows us to combine the excellence of our world-renowned restaurant community with the goodness of those who live in and visit Southern Nevada,” Burton continued. “This celebration of dining out for a cause addresses the issue of hunger head on, while affecting positive change.”
Approximately two weeks before Las Vegas Restaurant Week begins, the mobile-friendly website helpoutdineoutlv.org will launch, providing a complete list of participating restaurants, prix-fixe menus, as well as the option to make reservations.
In 2017, Las Vegas Restaurant Week welcomed participation from 162 restaurants, raising more than $200,000. The record-breaking amount helped feed food insecure people in the community. In 2018, the highly anticipated culinary experience returns June 18 and concludes on June 29.
One hundred percent of the proceeds collected from participating restaurants will benefit Three Square in its efforts to provide meals to the more than 279,000 food-insecure residents in Southern Nevada.
