About Henrico Restaurant Week
When is it?
The second edition of Henrico Restaurant Week will be held Apr. 1-9, 2017.
How does it work?
The concept is simple, and the benefits will extend throughout Henrico County. Participating restaurants will offer special fixed-price lunch and/or dinner menus during the entire event. Two-course lunches will be available for $10 or $15, and three-course dinners will be available for $20, $25 or $30, depending upon the restaurant. (Prices do not include tax, tips or beverages.)
Diners will be able to experience a wide variety of Henrico dining establishments and enjoy a taste of their unique offerings for a price that provides extra value. Visit your favorite restaurant or try a new spot you’ve been meaning to visit!

Who does it benefit?
Henrico Restaurant Week is proud to partner with the Coal Pit Learning Center, which is located in Henrico. The center, which serves underprivileged children, will receive $1 from the purchase of each lunch and $2 from the purchase of each dinner sold at all participating restaurants during Henrico Restaurant Week.
Coal Pit has been providing a low-cost two year preschool and daycare for low-income, at-risk students in the western Henrico area for more than 40 years. Its goal is to provide a quality preschool education for its students so that they are well-prepared when they enter kindergarten. All of the school's parents either work or attend school or are taking a training program. They pay what they can afford according to a sliding scale. Coal Pit Learning Center is the only affordable preschool and daycare for these low-income parents in the county.
In addition to what the parents pay, the center is supported through grants from foundations, churches, businesses, civic organizations and individuals. It does not receive any government funding except from Henrico County, which pays the utilities and cares for the building and grounds.
Coal Pit Learning Center was created in 1976 to prepare low-income students for academic success and to help their families improve their lives. It has educated more than 1,000 students during this time. It takes its name from the historic Coal Pit School, the century-old two-room schoolhouse in which the center operates.
