"Dine Out/Take Out" for Dubuque Public Schools

Dubuque’s “Dine Out/Take Out” for Public Schools event will take place on Thursday, Ocotber 14, 2021, presented by the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools (FDPS). “Dine Out/Take 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 or take out at participating restaurants, in an effort to drive business at local eateries, and raise money for school projects and programs not covered by the school district’s annual budget.

The public is encouraged to participate throughout the day by eating out or taking 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/taking out” for public schools. Please follow the current city and state mandates when participating in this event and help keep our community safe.

The following participating restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to FDPS on October 14:
