Dine Out (or In) for Hunger

This September we are partnering with local restaurants to help raise awareness about hunger in addition to raising funds.  You'll notice some restaurants listed below will have a donation box and some Beyond Hunger collateral on display.  Consider rounding your coffee order up by making a donation (just $1 = 3 meals) or ordering something during the Dine Out events below. 

By ordering from any of the participating restaurants, you will also be able to mark off a bingo square (here) to have a chance of getting Beyond Hunger Swag!  Also, the participating restaurant with the most donations will win a fabulous prize.  Be sure to include where you ate at in box on the donation page.   

Dine Out Events:

  • Thursday Night Out 9/9 - Enjoy the last night of Downtown Oak Park's Thursday Night Out with their great local bites.  Don't forget to stop by our table and pick up your Hunger Action Month bingo card.  For those that get BINGO, you'll receive a fabulous prize.
