Restaurant Week to help kids eat healthy
During the last January’s Restaurant Week, $10,156 was raised for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, which was exactly $1 from everyone who enjoyed one of the participating restaurant's prix fixe meals. This time around, $1 from every $26 prix fixe meal sold between July12-18 will go to the The PB&J Fund, which connects Charlottesville youth with the resources and knowledge necessary to help develop a healthy diet. The money raised during RW will go to expanding an impromptu holiday giving program the organization started last year.
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. The PB&J Fund was created in the belief that a healthy diet should be easily accessible to all kids, just like the most famous and basic childhood food of peanut butter and jelly.
