Mark your calendar now: you're going to want to go out for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three!) on Tuesday, June 21. As part of Foodfight!: Eat Out to Fight Hunger, participating restaurants will donate 5% of the day's proceeds to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank's Operation Feed campaign.
Foodfight is organized by the Central Ohio Restaurant Association, who recruits member restaurants to donate. Last year's event raised enough money to provide 40,000 meals (every dollar raised equals two meals for struggling Central Ohio families).
What a great excuse to eat at a restaurant you've been meaning to visit for a while now. I'm thinking my day will include dinner at The Clarmont.
Here's a look at the participating restaurants in Columbus:
