City Dining Cards, a marketing company that encourages pleople to visit local restaurants, recently presented a $730 check to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank to help the nonprofit organization continue its work to promote long-term solutions for hunger.

The donation was raised from sales of the 2012-13 deck of City Dining Cards: Providence, which contains 50 $10 discount cards with savings to locally owned restaurants. The deck retails for $20, and 5 percent of all sales were donated to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

“We’re excited about the continuing relationship with City Dining Cards,” said Andrew Schiff, CEO of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. “It’s great to be part of a project that encourages people to visit our great local restaurants, while also contributing valuable funds to the Food Bank at a time of historically high need for food assistance.”

The food bank also raised $1,700 through in-house sales of the cards. The food bank receives 55 percent of the deck’s retail price when sold directly from the organization. The 2013–2014 decks are now available for sale at City Dining Card’s website. •
