Restauranteur Charlie Hallowell recently announced the 3rd season of Sunday Suppers, a charity dinner series hosted by our favorite restaurants in the area! All proceeds from the dinners go to benefitting East Bay organizations working on behalf of the community. To date, Sunday Suppers has raised almost $150K for various East Bay charities!
The restaurant lineup is stellar, including two of Charlie’s restaurants, Penrose and Pizzaiolo, and Berkeley’s Chez Panisse. July 17th is the first supper of the season, at Oakland’s Penrose, with 100% of proceeds going to Planting Justice. Planting Justice’s mission is to democratize access to affordable, nutritious food by empowering urban residents with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to maximize organic food production, expand job opportunities, and ensure environmental sustainability in the Bay Area.
Tickets for an unforgettable multi-course dinner and wine experience at Penrose are now on sale here. The full Sunday Suppers series schedule is below — what a great way to support these amazing East Bay charities while dining on spectacular food with great company!
