The Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools will host Dine Out/Take Out for Public Schools on Thursday, Oct. 15.

The event encourages school district families and residents to dine out or take out at participating restaurants in an effort to drive business at local eateries and raise money for school projects and programs not covered by the school district’s annual budget.

The public is encouraged to participate throughout the day by eating out or taking out at partner restaurants or ordering food for delivery. Diners should be sure to tell their servers and cashiers that they are “dining out/taking out” for public schools.


The public also is encouraged to share pictures of themselves at partner restaurants and tagging the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools on social media.
