Throughout August four downtown restaurants will be donating a portion of sales from select menu items to Loving Spoonful, a Kingston organization working to make healthy food more accessible to the city’s low-income population.
Participating restaurants are Chien Noir, Olivea, Pan Chancho and Chez Piggy. Each restaurant has come up with its own way to contribute to Summer Lovin’, and servers will be able to give diners the details.
Summer Lovin’ is an opportunity to treat yourself, to support local downtown businesses and, importantly, to help others in the community who are less fortunate. It is dining with a conscience in Kingston.
