DineLA may be over, but you can still eat well for a good cause. On Monday, March 22, Philippe Chow, chef-owner of Philippe, will be hosting a three-course, prix-fixe menu with 20% of proceeds directly benefiting Meals on Wheels' March for Meals program.
Sponsored by Meals on Wheels of West Los Angeles, Philippe's support of March for Meals is part of an annual national campaign aimed at raising awareness of senior hunger. In Los Angeles alone, Meals on Wheels provides over 40,000 meals per year to Angelenos unable to plan, shop and prepare meals for themselves. Philippe's participation is just one of several senior hunger-based fundraising initiatives held in March, the month during which the original Older American Act was passed. On March 13, Baja Fresh and California Pizza Kitchen (Westwood locations only) get in on the act with part of the day's proceeds supporting March for Meals. Check out Philippe's menu ($50 for the 3 courses) after the jump.
