Fresh Sheet: Dine out to Feed Spokane

By The Spokesman-Review
 

During National Nutrition Month, the Greater Spokane Dietetic Association is partnering with Feed Spokane to present Dine Out to Feed Spokane.

Participating restaurants – there are at least 15 – will make a donation to Feed Spokane this month when diners visit on designated days or order from special Dine Out menus.

Feed Spokane works with local restaurants to eliminate food waste and help feed the hungry. Restaurants contact the organization when they have leftover food, which is collected and then distributed to some 20 meal sites.

For information on where and when to dine, search online for “Dine Out to Feed Spokane” or visit the event’s “Dine Out to Feed Spokane” Facebook page.
