This summer, RAMW will premiere a new awareness campaign to shine a light on hunger and food accessibility in the region. Select Restaurant Week locations will partner with the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) to help fundraise for its more than 500 food assistance agencies, while others will donate a portion of their Restaurant Week profits to CAFB. Every dollar provides over two full meals for a neighbor in need.
