Looking to feed off its ultra-popular Thanksgiving morning foot race, the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is encouraging diners to wear their Run to Feed the Hungry shirts this week at one of 13 restaurants.
The public-awareness campaign for the food bank will be held all week, when diners are asked to check in at participating restaurants via social media.
"The goal of this fun, local event is to remind Sacramento diners that SFBFS, the local charity that operates Run to Feed the Hungry, serves thousands of families year round," the agency said in a news release.
Diners are also asked to make contributions to the food bank this week. For every $10 donated, diners will receive one entry into a drawing for a $50 gift card at one of the participating restaurants. Gifts are available for larger donations.
The restaurants taking part in the campaign are: Mulvaney's B&L; Red Rabbit Restaurant & Bar; Ten22; Lucca Restaurant & Bar; Ella Dining Room & Bar; the Firehouse; Nopalitos Southwestern Cafe; Miyagi Bar & Sushi; Golden Bear; Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co.; River City Brewing Co.; Ink Eats and Drinks; and Hoppy Brewing Co.
