Four Newport-Mesa restaurants are among 19 in Orange County preparing for a two-week campaign in August to fight hunger among children.
For the last five years, S.Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water has put on the Dine Out Program to raise funds for Share Our Strength, a nationwide charity that works with local food banks and community groups to provide food for children in need. Soprano's in Costa Mesa and Sage, Port and Sage on the Coast in Newport Beach are in the program this year.
From Aug. 19 to 23 and Aug. 26 to 30, restaurants in the Dine Out Program will offer a three-course menu — $25 for lunch, $35 for dinner — with a complimentary bottle of S.Pellegrino. The bottled water distributor will donate $1 to Share Our Strength for every meal served.
