GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Restaurant Week Grand Rapids is returning in 2015, giving residents and visitors a chance to Taste the City.

… “We are proud to be able to contribute funding for Secchia Institute for Culinary Education during Restaurant Week Grand Rapids,” said Doug Small, Experience Grand Rapids President in a press release. “Throughout the 12 day event each restaurant donates $1 from every Restaurant Week meal sold to the Restaurant Week Grand Rapids Student Scholarship Fund at GRCC.

“The fund, over five years, has raised almost $100,000 from which numerous scholarships have been awarded. It is rewarding to see the talented students from Secchia Institute for Culinary Education joining the ranks of the food service staff in this community. A key component of a destinations appeal is the quality of its local dining scene. Restaurant Week was created to draw attention to our wonderful earth-to-table dining options in the Grand Rapids area.”
