Dine Downtown Returns
The 11 day culinary celebration to benefit social service and food literacy programs!
Calling all foodies! Experience the best of Downtown Sac’s gourmet food scene during the award-winning Dine Downtown Restaurant Week.
The 14th annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week presented by Kaiser Permanente returns to Sacramento in January 2019. For 11 days, 35 of Downtown’s finest restaurants offer special 3-course dining experiences for $35* with one dollar from every meal donated to social services and food literacy programs.
“Dine Downtown is a celebration of the culinary talents that call our urban core home,” said Michael Ault, executive director of Downtown Sacramento Partnership. “Guests have an opportunity to explore new dining experiences and rediscover some of the most iconic restaurants in our region. Pair that with the social benefit this program raises and it’s no surprise Dine Downtown continues to be incredibly popular with restaurants and customers, alike.”
Launched in 2005, Dine Downtown provides a significant boost for local restaurants during an otherwise slower period for the industry. In its 13-year run, Dine Downtown has generated more than $5 million in restaurant sales in the Central City. More than just a foodie favorite and economic boost for local restaurants, $1 from every Dine Downtown meal is donated to food literacy and social service programs in the community. In 2017, more than $13,000 was raised to support programs run by the California Food Literacy Center and Transforming Lives, Cultivating Success (TLCS).
“We’re grateful for the support the Dine Downtown program brings,” said Erin Johnson, executive director of TLCS. “The donation we receive allows us to provide food for some of the most vulnerable residents of downtown. Being able to provide supplemental food at the end of the month has quite literally been a life saver.”
