Dine Out For Kids is Tuesday, June 22!

Join us in support of local kids and local restaurants on Tuesday, June 22!

Communities In Schools is excited to announce that Dine Out For Kids® is back for 2021!  On Tuesday, June 22, the Charlotte community has the opportunity to come together to support two groups that have been heavily impacted by the pandemic – children in our public schools, and our local restaurants. 

Last year, we made the difficult decision to cancel Dine Out For Kids®. Now we are thrilled that we can safely hold this event again and restaurants are eager to participate. The simple concept remains the same:  make plans to either dine out – or order take-out – on June 22 from one (or more!) of the participating restaurants listed below, and the restaurant will donate a portion of their sales that day to CIS. All you have to do is choose to eat out or order take-out on June 22!  You will be supporting these local restaurants and the 5,000+ students we serve in CMS schools.

Let’s come together to provide students with the resources and support they need to recover from this difficult year, and get them back on track towards a bright and promising future. At the same time, while enjoying a delicious meal and a break from cooking, you’ll be supporting these locally-owned restaurants, that, despite their own hardships of this past year, want to do their part to support local kids. It’s a win-win for everyone!  Let’s eat!

Many Thanks to these Participating Restaurants
