Dine Out. end hiv.

On Thursday, September 30, dine out at participating restaurants to support HIV/AIDS services in the East Bay.

Dining Out For Life is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, community supporters, corporate sponsors, and local restaurants. More than 3,000 restaurants nation-wide donate a portion of their proceeds from one special day of dining to the licensed HIV/AIDS service agency in their area.

Project Open Hand, a local nonprofit that provides medically-tailored meals to the critically ill, is the licensed beneficiary for Dining Out For Life in the East Bay.

Our Dining Out For Life East Bay Restaurant Partners (listed below) are committed to supporting Project Open Hand’s mission to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the sick and vulnerable. On Thursday, September 30, these restaurants will donate a percentage of the day’s proceeds to help fund Project Open Hand’s programs and provide nutritious, medically-tailored meals with love to our clients in the East Bay.
