Foundation Hosts “Dine Out for Public Schools” Event

DUBUQUE, IOWA—Dubuque’s “Dine Out for Public Schools” event took place on Thursday, May 31, 2018, presented by the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools (FDPS). “Dine Out” is a collaboration between local restaurants, the community, and the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools (FDPS), in raising funds to enrich Dubuque Community School District programs. The goal is to encourage school district families and Dubuque residents to dine out at participating restaurants, in an effort to drive business at local eateries, and raise money for school nutrition initiatives. "Dine Out for Public School" raised over $6,500 on the November 9th and May 31st events and the money will be used at the elementary level to purchase healthy snacks for student and family events at the schools.
