WEST HOLLYWOOD — Following the first-ever Eat + Drink Week, the West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board (WHTTB) announced today a donation of $2,000 to Project Angel Food.

West Hollywood’s take on the traditional restaurant week format, which showcased the city’s diverse landscape of culinary excellence, with a craft cocktail twist – featured charitable proceeds to Project Angel Food including a pledge of $1 for every Eat + Drink Week reservation made online through Open Table.

The charity prepares and delivers healthy meals to L.A. residents with serious illnesses, who are unable to shop and/or prepare food for themselves, relying on donors and more than 4,700 volunteers to offer this service free of charge.

“We’re thrilled that the success of Eat + Drink Week not only allowed us to share the fantastic culinary creativity diversity of West Hollywood with residents and visitors, and also benefit those struggling in our own community,” says Tom Kiely, president and CEO of the West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board. “We admire the mission of Project Angel Food and are happy to contribute to the great work they’re doing in L.A.”

Every $5 donated to Project Angel Food provides a healthy, delicious meal to those in need, meaning the charitable donation will provide 400 meals through the organization.

More than three dozen restaurants and bars participated in Eat + Drink Week from October 18-27, offering foodies of all kinds special pricing and menus that range from fine dining to late-night after-club bites and beverages.

“What West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board showcases most is West Hollywood’s heart, and Project Angel Food is so grateful to be a beneficiary of their generosity,” said Richard Ayoub, executive director at Project Angel Food.
