It’s that time of year again! Time for the 10th Annual Neighborhood Grills Benefit Dinner, benefiting the U-District Food Bank.
On February 8th, order dinner at either Greenlake Bar & Grill at 7200 East Green Lake Drive N, or Eastlake Bar & Grill, and a minimum of 50% of your tab will benefit the food bank. Or, order off of their special menu for the evening and 66% of your tab will benefit the food bank.
Between the two restaurants, the U-District Food Bank is hoping to raise at least $6000, which would equal half of their food budget for February. In these trying times, they are busier than ever. In 2011, the food bank experienced 55,000 customer visits and distributed 2.3 million pounds of food, according to development director Paul Yunker.
Can’t make it out on the 8th? That’s no problem. Consider donating $10 instead directly to the food bank through their website.
