New ‘recipe’ for Restaurant Week GR

July 1, 2020; FOX 17

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — At a time when many restaurants are struggling after COVID-19 closures, Restaurant Week Grand Rapids is back, and more important than ever.

… “In the past we’ve donated on behalf of the restaurants and our sponsors over $150,000 thousand dollars to the GRCC Culinary Institute,” (Kate) Lieto said. “This year, each ‘check in’ will be a dollar donation, and we’re going to be donating that up to $5,000 dollars. So, as people are dining out they’re also going to be contributing to a great cause and contributing to that scholarship fund, to help fund the next chef.”

PPE requests due to Purchasing Department by July 10

We are asking that those still needing personal protection equipment (PPE) and associated items submit requests to the Purchasing Department no later than Friday, July 10th. We’d like to place any outstanding items on order to ensure that all requests are fulfilled. Placing mass orders — as opposed to fulfilling individual requests — is the best way to manage this process.

Thank you for your cooperation!
