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.”
