Make One Meal Matter

It’s time to get your friends together and make a reservation at one of over 80  restaurants, bars, bakeries and coffee shops participating in Dining Out for Greater Palm Springs on April 25.

Through Dining Out For Life, you can easily support Desert AIDS Project while eating some of the best food in the Coachella Valley.  The event, which features the Coachella Valley’s most generous restaurants, is in TWO WEEKS!

Make a reservation at participating restaurants on April 25th and a percentage of your bill will be donated to Desert AIDS Project. It’s that easy. Don’t wait … reserve your table now and invite all your friends!


Local chefs are getting ready to welcome you on April 25.  Learn More.

Good News:  Did you know that Dining Out for Life happens in 60 cities across North America and that the top three fundraising restaurants last year were all in Greater Palm Springs?  In fact, because of generous participating locations, Greater Palm Springs ranked second in fundraising raising $280,000 right here in our local community to support client services at Desert AIDS Project.

Click here for a list of all participating restaurants and then call your friends so you can Make One Meal Matter together!  We are happy to announce that many new restaurants have joined the cause this year, committing to donate 33% or more of their food, beverage, and liquor gross sales to support Desert AIDS Project on April 25.
