Participating restaurants are excited to bring back the +1 initiative to this year’s Fox Valley Restaurant Week. For each plate served at a participating restaurant over the course of the week, $1 will be donated back into the community, benefiting Volunteer Fox Cities. This monetary donation is a great way to support the local nonprofit community, as Volunteer Fox Cities’ mission is to connect volunteers to community needs in the Fox Cities region through outreach and education. The 26-year-old organization supports more than 100 different nonprofits in their volunteering recruitment, training, education and more. Last year, Restaurant Week’ers plated up 8,897 times, making almost a $9,000 donation back to the community!
