On Monday, October 15, the District’s five EatWell DC restaurants will donate 15 percent of their dining (and drinking) proceeds to DC Greens, an organization that focuses on food and community in DC.

DC Greens connects District communities to healthy food by supporting school gardens in all eight Wards of the city and by managing food access initiatives so that low-income communities have access to fresh, healthy and local food. DC Greens also runs the DC Farm to School Network, deepening students’ connection to their food through experiential learning.

To help support DC Green’s community-wide efforts in health and sustainability, GiveWell DC, the charitable arm of EatWell DC, selected DC Greens for the October 15th Dine-Out event.

Four of Five Restaurants in Neighborhood

The five participating restaurants include Logan Tavern (1423 P Street NW), Commissary (1443 P Street NW), Grillfish (1200 New Hampshire Avenue NW), The Heights (3115 14th Street NW) and The Pig (1320 14th Street NW).

Dinner reservations for Logan Tavern, Commissary, Grillfish and The Heights can be made on Open Table. Make sure to note DC Greens in the “Special Requests” section of the online form. Please call (202) 290-2821 to make reservations for The Pig.
