Restaurant Week is about more than just incredible meals and incredible value. During a time when it's needed most, KCRW offers the opportunity to directly support Kansas City's restaurant industry-including many small, family-owned businesses. In addition to supporting KC's restaurants, you'll be doing good for the entire community. Participating restaurants pledge to donate 10 percent of sales from each meal to benefit an annual charity partner and two founding beneficiaries.
The 2022 Community Partner is Guadalupe Centers. As the largest Hispanic organization in Kansas City since 1919, Guadalupe Centers serves more than 12,000 men, women and children each year through its various programs and has continuously evolved to meet the needs of families in crisis and those striving to contribute to the metro area's success.
KCRW's founding beneficiaries include the Visit KC Foundation and the Greater KC Restaurant Association EducationalFoundation. These non-profit foundations are dedicated to workforce development within tourism and hospitality, two areas hit particularly hard by the pandemic.
