Here’s another good reason to eat out on a Tuesday night: on November 9th, as many as 150 Bay Area-wide restaurants are taking part in the first annual ~BAY AREA DINE OUT FOR MEALS ON WHEELS~. When you dine out at participating restaurants, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the local Meals On Wheels.
Go to www.dineoutNOW.org to see which of your favorite restaurants are pitching in. San Francisco restaurants include Perbacco, Rose Pistola, 1300 on Fillmore, Acquerello, Commonwealth, E&O Trading Co., Fifth Floor, Florio, Pizza Nostra, Zuppa… the list is long. The other Bay Area counties have plenty of restaurants to choose from too, including Italian Colors and Ajanta in Alameda County, Yankee Pier and Chevalier in Contra Costa County, Roadside BBQ in Marin County, Gambardella’s and John Bentley’s in San Mateo County, and Paolo’s in Santa Clara County. Diners will also be able to make donations at each restaurant that will go directly to the local Meals On Wheels program in their county.
Every year, the seven Bay Area Meals On Wheels programs provide nearly 3 million hot, nutritious meals to over 8,500 homebound seniors, as well as supportive services and daily human contact. The participating Meals On Wheels organizations are Meals On Wheels of San Francisco; Alameda County Meals On Wheels; Meals On Wheels of Contra Costa; Marin Meals On Wheels; Meals On Wheels by Peninsula Volunteers, Inc. San Mateo County; Santa Clara County Meals On Wheels; and Meals On Wheels of Solano County.
