Restaurant Week Donates To GLFB

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - After a successful city-wide Capital Area Restaurant week last month organizers presented a donation to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

The total participants came to 23 restaurants during restaurant week.

Each of them donated a portion of the profits to help feed the community. Organizers say it's a year round need.

“There is a need every day of the year. People are at risk of being hungry, so we have to make sure there is healthy food throughout our region for people who are potentially in need, and this is a time of the year where people are not thinking so often about making those donations that they think about during the holidays. So an event like this is really important to us,” said Joe Wald, executive director, Greater Lansing Food Bank.

Restaurant week raised more than $3,400 for the food bank.
