October through Nov. 14th, local restaurants are teaming up with United Way to improve lives and strengthen our community. Visit one of the participating Dining United restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner to support United Way. These restaurants have pledged to donate a portion of their proceeds toward the United Way‘s community campaign. 

United Way of 1000 Lakes invests in more than 33 programs and services across 20 agency partners. These programs and services impact more than a dozen communities and touch the lives of one-in-three people in the Itasca area.

Get your family, friends, or coworkers together for a good time and an even better cause! The more you eat, the more they donate. The money raised stays in the local Itasca Area and helps ensure kids stay on track to graduation, people are healthy, and families have strong financial futures. Download the Pocket Guide
