It's Coming! Restaurant Week To Help Three Square Food Bank!


Three Square Food Bank’s Las Vegas Restaurant Week returns for its 11th annual event June 19-30, 2017.

Three Square Food Bank encourages restaurant owners and chefs to “save the date” and register early for the 12-day culinary event. Interested restaurants should contact Three Square’s Kari Goldberg at 702.644.3663 ext. 332, or kgoldberg@threesquare.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, with a fixed portion of the meal’s cost donated to Three Square.

“The Las Vegas restaurant community is renowned and respected all over the world for its innovation, quality and unparalleled customer service,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square. “Three Square’s Las Vegas Restaurant Week demonstrates yet another aspect of the restaurant community’s excellence, helping to raise funds and provide food to the hundreds of thousands of hungry residents in our community.”

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 and directions on how to make reservations.

In 2016, Las Vegas Restaurant Week saw record-breaking numbers. The 12-day event welcomed participation from more than 170 restaurants and raised nearly $185,000 in donations to feed hungry people in Southern Nevada. In 2017, the highly anticipated culinary experience returns June 19 and concludes on June 30.

One hundred percent of the proceeds collected from this year’s participating restaurants will benefit Three Square and its mission to provide meals to more than 296,000 food-insecure residents in Southern Nevada.

Las Vegas Restaurant Week began in 2007 as a way to give locals and tourists the opportunity to help out by dining out. 2016 marked the tenth year of Las Vegas Restaurant Week, which features a variety of fine dining experiences throughout the Valley. Proceeds from Restaurant Week benefit Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank. Three Square currently provides more than more than 40 million pounds of food and grocery product – the equivalent of more than 33 million meals – per year to more than 1,300 community partners including nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks. For additional information visit www.threesquare.org or www.helpoutdineoutlv.org.
