Dine Out to Dig In

I'm always happy to donate to a good cause, especially if it means I get to eat some great food in the process. And Dine Out to Dig In is a terrific cause, because it benefits Growing Gardens, an organization with the goal of "getting at the root of hunger in Portland, Oregon." And that means having a meal on Oct. 21 at one of a who's who list of Portland's best restaurants. (If I'm not mistaken, I believe that's called a "win win" proposition.)

And what precisely does this organization do? According to their website, it "organizes volunteers to build organic, raised bed vegetable gardens in backyards, front yards, side yards and even on balconies, and supporting low income households for three years with seeds, plants, classes, mentors and more." Whew!

Participating restaurants will donate 10% to 20% of their sales on Oct. 21. The current list includes Biwa, Ciao Vito, Firehouse, Fish Grotto, Iorio, Laughing Planet Cafes, Park Kitchen, Screen Door and SubRosa. Check the website for the latest updates to the list!

Details: Dine Out to Dig In, a benefit for Growing Gardens. Oct. 21. Check the website for the latest participating restaurants.
