SYRACUSE, N.Y.-- The Food Bank of Central New York will receive a portion of the profits from sales of what are known as City Dining Cards.
It's an opportunity to try new restaurants, save money and help a good cause.
The new Dining Decks feature 50 $10 discount cards to local restaurants. A new feature this year are Drink Decks, which include 25 "buy one, get one drink free" cards at local bars.
You can purchase a Dining Deck for $20, the Drink Deck for $10, or both for $25. 5% of all the sales will be donated back to the Food Bank of Central New York.
Last year the City Dining Card program gave back more than $1,600 to help feed those in need across 11 counties.
"It's great to have the support of the community. To really help individuals in need and again, it's for a great cause, so we would love for everyone to get involved," said Liz Occhino, the Food Bank's Special Events and Marketing Coordinator.
You can still use last year's cards through the end of the year, and this year's won't expire until the end of 2014
