Mark Your Calendar for Dine Downtown Restaurant Week


Downtown Sacramento’s vibrant food scene is on a roll.

Shortly after being named as the “Next Great American Food City” by Southwest Magazine, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership is proud to announce the dates for Dine Downtown Restaurant Week. The annual foodie event is taking place January 7 through January 16, there’s no better time to be a “foodie” than during Dine Downtown when indulgent, three-course dining experiences are priced at just $35.

Launched in 2005, Dine Downtown boasts decadent dining experiences at Sacramento’s finest restaurants, including special menus assembled by amazingly talented and creative local chefs. Plus, food enthusiasts can feel good about their culinary experiences since $1 from every Dine Downtown meal will be donated to the Food Literacy Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring change in community food education.

In 2015, $14,000 in funds were generated for the Food Literacy Center from this program which allowed them to proactively reach even more children with important messaging about food literacy. And, they are pleased to have ongoing food literacy programs in place in eight local schools by the New Year.

Funds generated by the 2016 Dine Downtown effort will go toward moving food literacy education into the daytime curriculum — not just as an after-school program — which underscores food literacy education is as critical as reading, writing and arithmetic.
