$1 equals 40 days of water for a child (cleveland chefs join together for unicef’s project tap)

From March 22 – 28, five local restaurants are participating in Unicef’s Tap Project, which brings clean water to millions of children around the world – something each of us takes for granted every single day. Just $1 provides drinking water for one child for 40 days – $1, something most of spend without a second thought on coffee, the paper or any number of things on any given day.

Participating restaurants include: Momocho, Red the Steakhouse, Moxie, Paladar, Bar Cento and Gamekeeper’s Taverne.

Momocho is going one step further. Chef Eric Williams is donating an additional $250 to the cause, plus extending the restaurant’s popular happy hour until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25. So take advantage of the extended hours and have a great night out for less and do some good in the process.

I first heard of this cause after reading it in the NY Times two years ago when New York City restaurants asked their patrons to donate $1 (or more) for water they normally drink for free. Since then, it has grown to a nationwide movement that thankfully, our local chefs and restaurants quickly got on board to support.
