Next Thursday, September 24, is Dish Up Literacy day in Seattle, an event put on by Page Ahead, a non-profit organization that works to increase and develop literacy programs for children. And Dish Up Literacy is making it easy to give – you can help raise money simply by eating out!
On Thursday restaurants participating in Dish Up Literacy have agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to Page Ahead, meaning the more people who eat out on the 24th, the more money will go toward literacy services, books and supplies for kids.
“We provide new books for kids, story times for younger children and family workshops with the proceeds,” said Tara, a Page Ahead volunteer. “Hope to see you dining out on September 24th.”
In Queen Anne both Julia’s and Ten Mercer will be donating 20 percent of their profits on the day to the program. The Signature is also participating. But if you’re not in the neighborhood next Thursday, check out other participating restaurants in the Seattle area.
