This community event, presented by Hungry in Reno and designed to support and promote local food and drink establishments, will take place June 2-9, 2021
Over 80 local establishments have registered to participate in the 2nd Annual Reno Food & Drink Week. Participating food and drink establishments will be offering special, off-menu bites and drinks to locals and visitors throughout the week.
“We are all surfacing from hard times and we need something to rally behind and look forward to,” said Anne Archer, owner of The Arch Society and Batch Cupcakery. “What better way than supporting the very local businesses that worked so hard to stay open.”
Reno Food & Drink Week (formerly Reno Restaurant Week) has been created to support and celebrate the local food and drink community, to encourage locals and visitors to try new places, delicious dishes and tasty beverages during this week and, hopefully after having an excellent experience, revisit throughout the year.
“It’s a great opportunity to bring everyone together to experience some of the great food Reno has to offer,” said Brett Moseley, owner of Washoe Public House. “And, a portion of the proceeds go right back into our community.”
“Our team appreciates the opportunity to showcase our craft beer and elevated bites with our community,” said Deane Albright, co-owner of Brasserie Saint James.
Reno Food & Drink Week’s current sponsors are Nevada State Bank, New West Distributing, Sierra Meat and Seafood, Swizzle Brand Solutions, Berge & Company CPA, edible Reno-Tahoe, Frey Ranch, Long Drink, Reno Tahoe Limousine, THE ROW: Eldorado, Circus Circus, Silver Legacy, Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Lead Dog Brewing and Reno Suites.
Sponsorships are still available, interested parties should contact Cheree Boteler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 775.527.2023.
“This is a fun event to bring energy to the local food scene,” said Cyndi Wallis, co-owner of Great Full Gardens. “We love participating every year, as well as seeing the delicious creativity of the other participants.”
While Reno Food & Drink Week is not a charity event but a community event created to support and promote local food and drink establishments, 100% of the net income from this event will be split evenly between the three 2021 Hungry Gives Back charities: Eddy House, Reno Rodeo Foundation and STEP2.
“The Reno Rodeo Foundation is beyond excited to be chosen as one of the recipients of the 2021 Reno Food & Drink Week,” said Clara Andriola, Executive Director of Reno Rodeo Foundation. “It’s truly an honor to know that because of Hungry in Reno and the generosity of our community we can continue to support children with extraordinary needs throughout northern Nevada.”
