Restaurants for Repairs
MLK, Jr Service Project
8th Annual Restaurants for Repairs
Same Great Event, Different Month
Restaurants for Repairs has moved to May. Help support the 2020 Decatur Martin Luther King Jr. Service Project by dining out at a participating restaurant on Tuesday, May 14. A percentage of the day’s proceeds will be donated to the project, which provides much needed repairs to help Decatur’s older residents to live safely, comfortably and affordably in their homes. Three to four homes will receive large-scale repairs thanks to the participating restaurants and their patrons.
This event is one of the main sources of funding for the project that takes place over the King Holiday weekend in January. Help Decatur’s older residents to live safely, comfortably and affordable in their homes by
enjoying a delicious meal!
This year’s restaurants include:
  • Brick Store Pub
  • Cafe Lily
  • The Corner Pub
  • Farm Burger
  • Grindhouse Killer Burgers
  • Kelly’s Market
  • LEONs Full Service
  • The Marlay House
  • Mezcalito's Cantina
  • Mojo Pizza
  • Parker’s on Ponce
  • Raging Burrito & Taco
  • Steinbeck's Ale House
  • Universal Joint Bar
