Dine Out for Public Schools

Dubuque’s “Dine Out for Public Schools” events will took place on November 9, 2017 and May 31, 2018. “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. The following restaurants participated in either one or both of the “Dine Out” dates.

Adobos Mexican Grill
Big Apple Bagel                  
Caroline's Restaurant                    
Kwik Stop/Dairy Queen      
East Mill Bakeshop                        
Falbo Bros Pizzeria             
Fat Tuesday's
Magoo’s Pizza
Texas Roadhouse   
Town Clock Inn

These events raised $6,585.70 which allows the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools to present the 13 elementary schools in the Dubuque Community School district a $500 check to purchase healthy snacks for student and parent events throughout the school year. Thank you to everyone who participated in the “Dine Out for Public Schools”.
