Dine Out against Hunger Staten Island 2015


April 23, 2015 is the official Dine Out Against Hunger day on Staten Island

Spring brings a lot of great restaurant events to our beautiful little borough – one of them is Dine Out Against Hunger!  It’s a restaurant based event where participating restaurants agree to donate 20% of the entire food bill to project hospitality, a borough based food and pantry kitchen supplier that helps struggling families by opening soup kitchens during times of need.

This year over 125 Staten Island restaurants are participating – and all you have to do to participate is eat out!  That’s right – what’s better than eating out while supporting a good cause.  Below will be a list of just some of the participating restaurants.  You can find the complete list on Project Hospitality website page.

  • Alor Cafe A European style cafe serving delicious food presented by Chef Alex Orman.  Menu includes items include crepes, savory or sweet.  Large selection of salads and deliciously cooked entree’s.

  • Jac Mao (formerly known as Fortune Garden) This authentic Chinese cuisine keeps its roots to ground by simply serving good old fashioned Chinese Cuisine with the recent addition of some new appetizers and an uplift in the environment, if you have not checked out the new restaurant, now is the time to do so.
