Help Fight Hunger With Thanksgiving in February

A Montgomery County event allows for residents to give back to the needy, while having a night out at a local restaurant.

Silver Spring residents can dine out for a good cause on Feb. 28 as a part of Thanksgiving in February.

Not only will patrons support local restaurants, but a portion of their check will help feed the hungry.

The 20-year-old event will help 11 Montgomery County agencies provide emergency food to those in need through the nonprofit Interfaith Works.

Restaurants in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Wheaton, Kensington, Potomac and several other municipalities will donate up to 20 percent of their patrons' checks to the charity.
