Make a Reservation for National Dine Out Day on June 19th for Hurricane Sandy Relief

PrintHurricane Sandy happened months ago, but the communities affected by this superstorm, especially those in New Jersey, are still working toward recovery. You can help by observing National Dine Out Day. When you dine out on Wednesday, June 19, at a participating restaurant, a percentage of your check will be donated to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. To date, the fund has granted more than $11 million to aid in home rebuilding, mold remediation, financial and legal counseling, economic development, and social services such as mental health support and food pantry replenishment.

Participating restaurants include Amanda’s Restaurant in Hoboken, Babbo in Manhattan, and Monsoon Asian Kitchen in Babylon, among others.

National Dine Out Day is a great way for people around the country to get out of the kitchen for a night, dine out at a participating restaurant, and help New Jersey’s victims get back on their feet. Make a reservation for National Dine Out Day on June 19th at one of these participating restaurants in New York or New Jersey to show your support for those still struggling.
