Nearly 20 local restaurants are partnering with Cempa Community Care on Thursday, June 20, to support the fight against HIV in the Tennessee Valley.

You can make a difference just by going out to eat Thursday. Each of the participating restaurants will donate a percentage of its sales to support Cempa Community Care's nutrition assistance program. Proceeds from Dining Out For Life will fund the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables for the Cempa Market.

"The Chattanooga restaurant community never ceases to amaze us," says Shannon Stephenson, Cempa Community Care chief executive officer. "It's incredible to have the support of so many local restaurants who come together to fight HIV in our area."
