HOUSTON, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Houston Restaurant Weeks (www.HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com), the single largest fundraiser in the United States benefiting the largest food bank in America, returns August 1st and runs through Labor Day, September 7th.

Founded in 2003 by volunteer Cleverley Stone, Houston Restaurant Weeks has raised almost $6 million for the Houston Food Bank. This has enabled the Food Bank to provide almost 18 million meals for Houstonians who are food insecure. As America's largest and nationally recognized as Feeding America's Food Bank of the Year, the Food Bank distributes 59 million nutritious meals through its network of 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other hunger relief charities in southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year. 

Houston Restaurant Weeks is run by volunteers and 100 percent of the donations raised from area restaurants go directly to the Food Bank. For 38 days, diners will enjoy specially priced multi-course prix-fixe menus.

A list of participating restaurants will be updated continuously on www.HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com with newly added participants.
