Houston Restaurant Weeks is the largest annual fundraiser for America’s largest food bank, the Houston Food Bank. The month-long charity dining extravaganza features specially priced lunches, brunches, and dinners at restaurants from The Woodlands to Galveston. Participating restaurants make donations based upon how many fixed price brunches, lunches, and dinners they sell during the event.
