How does Appetite for Life work?
Business owners from around Middlesex County generously offer to share a portion of their proceeds on a given day (or longer!). Simply eat or shop at one of these establishments to contribute. See the full list of participating restaurants, markets, and food trucks below (under Participating Businesses).
We also host two special events—a kickoff party at Herd Restaurant in Middletown and a party at Luigi's Restaurant in Old Saybrook! Join us to make an even bigger impact for those in our community who need cancer treatment and supportive care.
