Since Louisa County has great history as a caring community, we are excited that the 2019 Restaurant Week also offers a charitable component. For every meal that is purchased between March 1st and 10th from a Restaurant Week menu, $1 will be donated to the Louisa County Resource Council.
For 27 years, the Resource Council has provided food assistance for those in our community who are at risk of hunger. The food pantry continues to see a growing hunger problem in our area. In fact, a recent study conducted by UVA’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service confirmed that Louisa County’s food insecurity rate of 22.3% is “nearly twice the 11.8% national average.”
Your participation in Restaurant Week will support local businesses and Louisa County Resource Council’s work in our community to provide food to those who are most in need of help.
