Tampa Bay is Cooking Up a Cure for Cancer This September

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s Cooking Funds the Cure program is engaging the community, supporting local businesses, and uniting some of Tampa Bay’s favorite restaurants. Despite closures, mandates, and a slew of hardships, Tampa Bay restaurants recognize the importance of advocating for children battling cancer in our community and across the country.

Some of the areas most beloved restaurants have already joined forces by donating a percentage of their sales, dedicating specialty menu items, and/or hosting round-up campaigns throughout the month of September.

During this time, Cooking Funds the Cure is the perfect opportunity to support local restaurants and make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer. If you are unable to visit in person you can donate online and support our mission to find less toxic, more targeted treatments for children battling cancer.
