Still Life with Robin: Enjoy a Meal Out This Thursday - And Many Others Will Enjoy a Meal In

Food and Friends Dine Out for Life
by Peggy Robin

It's that time of year -- the annual Dine Out for Life!

It's your chance to do good by doing something you would probably do for your own enjoyment many nights of the year (and daytimes, too): Eat out! But on April 12, when you eat out at a participating Dine Out for Life! restaurant, your meal purchase helps to provide meals for people in our area who have HIV/AIDS, cancer, or other life-challenging illnesses. It costs you nothing extra on your restaurant bill; the restaurants are dedicating a portion of your check to Food and Friends, whose volunteers prepare and deliver meals to patients all year long.

All you need to do is choose your place to eat from the list of participating restaurants here:

On this page you can filter the restaurants by neighborhood, type of cuisine, time of day (lunch, dinner, late night, etc.) and donated percentage of the check. Restaurants are giving between 25% and 110% of the bill to Food and Friends.

You can make your reservation through Open Table here:

Here's what you need to know about Food and Friends:

"Food and Friends provides home-delivered meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. Since 1988, Food & Friends has provided over 21 million life-sustaining meals to more than 31,000 individuals. Our service area encompasses 5,300 square miles including the District of Columbia and 14 counties of Maryland and Virginia. Funds raised through Dining Out for Life allow us not only to serve today, but to prepare for the individuals who will need us tomorrow."

Not in town on Thursday? Dine Out for Life is taking place is 60 others cities. You can see the map here:

Bon Appetit!
