Here Are the 200 Restaurants and Food Trucks Participating in Dining Out for Life 2015


Ben Franklin DOFLActionAIDS‘s 25th annual Dining Out for Life (DOFL) takes place in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley on April 30th, with nearly 200 restaurants and food trucks in the region taking part. If you’re new to the game, this is how it works: On that evening participating restaurants will donate 33 percent of every check to a variety of regional HIV/AIDS service organizations, including ActionAIDS, AIDS Delaware, and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania. DOFL is one of my favorite ways to donate, because it’s such an easy, fun, and delicious way to give to a worthy cause.

Like last year, DOFL will be closing off a block at a yet-to-be-announced location to host a lunchtime food festival of sorts with the participating food trucks. Stay tuned for more information on that.

You can find the complete list of local restaurants participating below, divided into neighborhood/region. Look for your favorite spot, and fire up OpenTable to make reservations. Tables fill up fast.
