About Portland Dining Month

Know Before You Go

COVID-19 Event Update: The 2022 Portland Dining Month has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Travel Portland is proud to bring you Portland Dining Month, our annual celebration of the city’s culinary scene. Since 2009, food-loving Portland has dedicated the entire month of March to celebrating our acclaimed dining scene, offering 3 courses for $33.

Dining Month Supports Oregon Food Bank

For every Portland Dining Month reservation made using OpenTable through the links on the main Portland Dining Month page, a donation is made to the Oregon Food Bank.

“Since 2011, Portland Dining Month has raised $29,263.20 for Oregon Food Bank, or roughly the equivalent of 87,790 meals,” Oregon Food Bank Corporate and Community Relations Officer Yan Medice reported in February 2020.

The Oregon Food Bank is a local nonprofit committed to eliminating hunger and its root causes, and takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing the community together to provide food, education and hope to neighbors in need. Learn more about the Oregon Food Bank’s work and mission.
