In 2013, the event saw a record number of mobile app downloads, historic record traffic on the KCCVA website and received significant media attention. Kansas City Restaurant Week will again showcase a diverse group of restaurants from all parts of the Kansas City metro, offering diners multi-course lunch and dinner menus for $15 and $33, respectively.
Ten percent of each Restaurant Week menu will be donated to the beneficiaries of 2014 Kansas City Restaurant Week. The three charities are Harvesters – the Community Food Network, providing meals to the hungry in Kansas City, and will also benefit the Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and The GKCRA Educational Foundation, both nonprofit organizations helping to advance culinary education and the restaurant and tourism industries in Kansas City. The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation is administered by the KCCVA and primarily focuses on the identification, development and advocacy of tourism products in Kansas City regional communities. The (GKCRA) Educational Foundation provides training to its members in the hospitality industry by developing new educational programs and by offering scholarships to deserving members of the community. In 2010, the inaugural year of Kansas City Restaurant Week, $56,000 was raised with donations increasing each year – $80,000 in 2011, $143,000 in 2012, and $175,000 in 2013.
