For immediate release

DUBUQUE, IOWA—Dubuque’s “Dine Out for Public Schools” event will take place on Thursday, May 23, 2019, presented by the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools (FDPS). “Dine Out” is a collaborative effort by local restaurants, the community, and FDPS to raise funds that help enrich Dubuque Community School District programs and projects. The goal is to encourage school district families and Dubuque residents to dine at participating restaurants in an effort to drive business at local eateries while fundraising for the district.

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