Today, Sept. 15, is the day for Dine Out, Help Out, a new restaurant-based fundraiser by Inter-Faith Ministries.

All day today, diners can visit participating restaurants, who have agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to the charity. Inter-Faith plans to put the money towards its shelters, where people ca get beds, meals and help finding a job or arranging educational opportunities.

The list of 18 restaurants that have joined in can be found on the website for the event, and a person could design a pretty charitable meal plan for the day. Restaurants contributing money from lunch and dinner hours include Annex Lounge, AVI Seabar & Chophouse, both Wichita Granite City restaurants and the Il Vicino in College Hill. Albero Cafe is participating during dinner only, as is YaYa’s Eurobistro.

Each one has agreed to donate at least 20 percent of their proceeds from the day, though some are giving more.
