Dining Out For Life – Project Angel Food

Project Angel Food

Make a reservation and go out to eat on
Thursday, April 29, 2010 when leading restaurants around Los Angeles County will
come together in support of the nourishing, life-saving work of Project Angel
Food by participating in Dining Out for Life.

Dining Out for Life is an annual one-day fundraiser hosted by Subaru, held at
more than 3,500 restaurants in 55 cities throughout the country to benefit
HIV/AIDS service providers. Participating restaurants in Los Angeles will donate
25% or more of their sales solely to benefit Project Angel Food which cooks and
delivers free nutritious meals to homebound people struggling with
life-threatening illnesses such as HIV/AIDS.

Dining Out for Life has a proven track record of increasing sales at
participating restaurants while also creating a wonderful sense of community and
good will. More than 40 outstanding restaurants throughout LA County supported
Project Angel Food through the event last year.

“Many of Project Angel Food’s first meals 21 years ago were provided by
restaurants, so it is fitting that many restaurants will come together again on
this special day to show their ongoing commitment to the nutritional needs of
people bravely fighting life-threatening illnesses such as HIV/AIDS,” says
Project Angel Food CEO Margaret Steele. “Our partnering restaurants and chefs
recognize the major impact that the nourishing power of food can have on the
physical and emotional health of people undergoing the most difficult and
frightening experience one can know — fighting a life-threatening illness.”

Support for the national event has grown to over 250,000 diners, thanks in large
part to the efforts of Dining Out For Life spokesperson Ted Allen, host of Food
Network’s primetime competition series CHOPPED. “Dining Out for Life is an
easy way to make a meaningful contribution without spending more than a meal,”
says Allen. This year, Allen is joined by spokesperson Pam Grier, actress,
advocate and author of a soon-to-be released memoir Foxy—My Life In Three
