The restaurants in Kingwood and Humble offer special-price menus as part of one of the largest culinary fundraisers in the area, Houston Restaurant Weeks.

After the pandemic dampened last year’s initiative, HRW has returned with over 200 restaurants serving two- or three-course brunch and lunch menus valued at $ 20 to $ 49, and dinner menus for $ 35 to $ 49 over a five-week period starting in August US dollars with three or four courses will be offered September 1-6.

Foodies can feel comfortable on their culinary adventures as a portion of the proceeds will go to the Houston Food Bank, which saw record demand for donations and volunteers during the pandemic. Restaurants donate $ 1 to $ 5 for each meal on the chalkboard.
