What is Eat Drink HTX?

The sister event to Houston’s most popular foodie event, Houston Restaurant Weeks, Eat Drink HTX is the newly launched charity dining event produced by The Cleverley Stone Foundation. The lower price point event designed for casual dining concepts and conceived by HRW founder Cleverley Stone in the final years of her life, launched in 2022 with 91 participants and benefited the Houston Food Bank and Star of Hope Mission in Houston. Similar to HRW, Eat Drink HTX offers specially priced, prix fixe brunches, lunches and dinners along with a corresponding donation. Participating restaurants make donations based upon how many Eat Drink HTX meals they sell during the event; diners are not solicited for donations. The event includes restaurants located in Harris, Galveston and Montgomery counties. The Galveston County Food Bank and Montgomery County Food Bank are part of the Houston Food Bank’s Partner Distribution Organizations (PDOs). The Houston Food Bank provides food to these smaller food banks, which in turn distribute the food to hunger relief charities in a portion of HFB’s service area. The Houston Food Bank certifies that their PDOs meet Feeding America standards.

About Our Founder

Affectionately called “The Diva of Dining,” Cleverley Stone made it her life’s mission to beat hunger in Houston. “Dine Out & Do Good” was Stone’s mantra, and her tireless efforts spurred an annual citywide boom in restaurant revenues and contributions to The Houston Food Bank via her charity dining event Houston Restaurant Weeks.

Stone founded Houston Restaurant Weeks in 2003 and it is now the city’s largest annual fundraiser of its kind. Having raised over $17.5 million for the Houston Food Bank, the event has enabled the distribution of more than 52 million meals for food insecure Houstonians.

The economic impact of Houston Restaurant Weeks translates into millions of dollars for the local economy. August, which historically is the worst month of the year for Houston restaurants, has become one of (and for many the most) profitable months of the year.

One of Houston’s most beloved broadcasters and a true pioneer in food/restaurant/hospitality industry media coverage, Stone was the host for 13 years of The Cleverley Show, a food talk radio program on CBS Sports Radio 650/KIKK-AM in Houston which was the longest running show on CBS 650 AM in Houston. Since February 2008, Stone was also the food segment contributor on Houston’s Fox 26 Morning News.

Cleverley Stone passed away on May 28, 2020, following her battle with cancer. She was 68 years old.

Stone’s final wish was that Houston Restaurant Weeks continue in perpetuity in her name. Her daughter Katie Stone has picked up the baton and is now spearheading The Cleverley Stone Foundation which produces Houston Restaurant Weeks and now Eat Drink HTX carrying on and expanding a truly remarkable legacy.

The Cleverley Stone Foundation

The Cleverley Stone Foundation was created by Cleverley’s daughter, Katie Stone, to continue her mother’s mission and legacy of supporting Houstonians in need. The foundation produces Houston Restaurant Weeks which runs Aug 1- Labor Day each year and Eat Drink HTX which runs Feb 15-28 each year. The Cleverley Stone Foundation will also serve as a vehicle for future charitable endeavors designed to support the greater Houston area and beyond. In this way, the Foundation seeks to live up to its namesake by continuing to support and serve the Houston community that Cleverley so loved and devoted so much of her life to.

About the Houston Food Bank

Serving Houston and southeast Texas since 1982, Houston Food Bank’s mission is to provide food for better lives. We provide access to more than 150 million nutritious meals in 18 counties through our 1,600 community partners of food pantries, soup kitchens, social service providers and schools.  Filling gaps on plates, we have a strong focus on healthy foods and fresh produce. In collaboration with our community, we advocate for policy change and racial equity, and promote dialogue on ways to increase access to food and to improve the lives of those in our communities, including services and connections to programs that address the root causes of hunger and are aimed at helping families achieve long-term stability: nutrition education, health management, and help with securing state-funded assistance. We are a resource for individuals and families in times of hardship. Houston Food Bank works alongside our partner food banks in Montgomery County, Galveston County, Brazos Valley, and Trinity River area. Houston Food Bank is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network, with a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the 12th consecutive year.

About DePelchin Children's Center

DePelchin Children’s Center supports and sustains children and the families who care for them. Some of our programs, such as parenting classes and counseling, preserve and strengthen families. Other services, such as foster care and adoption, ensure children have the care and support they need to overcome trauma, both now and in the future. Our work is driven by our belief that all children should be part of safe, loving homes. DePelchin has been serving children and families in the Houston area since our founding in 1892. Our programs and services have evolved throughout our 131-year history, but our commitment to helping children has never changed.
