Eat Out to Fight Alzheimer’s

The sensory pleasures central to food trigger memories so much that it’s only fitting that the Alzheimer’s Association has decided to create the awareness- and fund-raiser Food for Thought. On March 4, more than two dozen area restaurants (and that list keeps growing, so restaurateurs, it’s not too late to take part) will give 10 percent of their proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a wide-ranging list, too, from family to fine dining (Mickey D’s to Olio e Limone), drinks powerful and potent (Blenders in the Grass to Hollister Brewing), even from A to Z (Arts & Letters Cafe to Zookers). The Alzheimer’s Association serves about 20,000 area residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, with programs and services free of charge, so help them support their work just by dining out. To find out more about Food for Thought and participating restaurants, see or call 892-4259.
