As Three Square continues its effort to provide emergency food to a growing number of Southern Nevadans in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization announced today that Las Vegas Restaurant Week, scheduled for June 8-19, 2020, will now be on-hold and set to return in 2021.
“For more than a decade, our culinary community has come together every year to support Three Square and the fight against hunger via Las Vegas Restaurant Week. Now, as restaurants throughout Southern Nevada begin re-opening for business, we hope that anyone who planned a meal out for Las Vegas Restaurant Week, if they’re able, will visit these amazing Southern Nevada restaurants and support them as they welcome customers,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square Food Bank.
Since implementing the Emergency Food Distribution strategy on March 11, Three Square has increased weekly food distribution from 1 million to 1.3 million pounds – the equivalent of 250,000 meals per week. A complete list of Three Square’s emergency food distribution sites and hours of operation is available at threesquare.org/help. This map and list are updated in real-time, ensuring the most current information is available.
“Now, in light of current events, our focus as an organization continues to be on the emergency food distribution that gets food into the hands and homes of the thousands of our neighbors who face need and uncertainty like never before,” said Burton. “When the time is right, we’ll begin planning for Las Vegas Restaurant Week 2021 with hopes to make it the biggest and best yet.”
