Fight AIDS by Dining Out: Food For Thought Presents the 15th Annual

Dining Out For Life® on December 1, 2016

Record Number of Sonoma County Restaurants Will Participate this Year




Forestville, CA—Thursday, December 1 marks the fifteenth year Food For Thought hosts

Sonoma County’s annual Dining Out For Life event, which is also World AIDS Day. 87 area

restaurants and cafes will participate, donating 25% or 50% of the day’s sales to Food For

Thought, which provides life-giving nutritional services to over 800 men, women, and

children living with HIV and other serious illnesses in Sonoma County.


Dining Out For Life is a unique event where people can enjoy lunch or dinner at their favorite

restaurants knowing that they are also benefitting their friends and neighbors in need. "It's

our biggest fundraiser of the year. The proceeds from Dining Out for Life ensure that we're

able to keep providing fresh groceries, a congregate lunch program, produce from our organic

garden, vitamins and supplements, and nutrition education to our clients, who receive these

services for free and for as long as they need them," said Ron Karp, executive director of Food

For Thought.


HIV remains a significant challenge in Sonoma County, as more people are affected by the

epidemic than ever before. Dining Out For Life is an international event held in over 65 cities

in the U.S. and Canada, raising $4 million annually for HIV/AIDS-related services. Food For

Thought hopes to raise over $165,000 to support its work from this event.


More restaurants and more types of restaurants than ever before are participating in Dining

Out For Life. Diners can enjoy a fast-casual dining experience or a farm-to-table meal utilizing

the best ingredients Sonoma County has to offer. The complete restaurant list is available at


Participating establishments are located in Bodega Bay, Cotati, Forestville, Graton,

Guerneville, Healdsburg, Occidental, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Sonoma,
