On Aug. 5 from 4 to 4:30 p.m. EST, Share Our Strength's Great American Dine Out will host the third of a series of summer webinars to provide strategies and ideas for restaurant operators who want to participate in the dine out for charity, which takes place from Sept. 20 to 26.

The Great American Dine Out is a week-long, nationwide event in which participating restaurants donate a portion of proceeds to help end childhood hunger in America. It is a flexible program, meaning operators can decide how they want to implement and promote it.

In the upcoming webinar, two executives from Buffalo Wild Wings--July Shoulak, senior vice president of operations, and Laura Rutten, director of marketing--will lead an online panel discussion. Click here to register for the webinar.
Chef Michael Garahan created chefsformammograms, a Web site that sells bags of Garahan's famous granola and generates a $2 donation from each sale to help fund mammograms at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, N.J. Garahan started the site in honor of his mother Delores, who died from breast cancer in 1976 just before Garahan graduated from the Culinary Institute of America.

Chefsformammograms is also holding a ChefsPKG recipe contest for members of the hospitality industry who have been unemployed at any point during 2009. Participants must create recipes using the entire contents of at least four packages, plus no more than seven more ingredients. Judging will be based on taste, ease of preparation and originality. First prize is $1,000, though the amount will increase with each banner ad placed on chefsformammograms.com. Second prize is $250 and third prize is $100.
