Deals on meals: Restaurant Week line-up announced

Get ready foodies and deal fans, it's almost time again for the summer version of Restaurant Week, July 9-15. This year, 16 area restaurants are on board for a festive feasting free-for-all that's get you a three-course, prix fixe dinner for just $26, with $1 going to the PB &J Fund, which helps to give kids the resources and knowledge necessary to help develop a healthy diet. By working with community partners to provide healthy meals and teach cooking habits, it aims to address kids’ nutritional needs at each stage of development.

This is the second time the PB &J Fund has been a Restaurant Week charity. Over all, Charlottesville Restaurant Weeks have brought in more than $55,000 for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, the PB&J Fund, and Meals on Wheels.
