Wouldn’t it be nice if you got a little payout for dining out? Well, that’s exactly what you could get if you visit any downtown Rochester restaurant during Foodie February.

Simply save your receipts for dine-in or carry-out from any participating area restaurant. Then, take your receipt to the Downtown Collaboration Studio at 431 S. Main Street, Rochester, or text the word FOODIE to 866-603-4005.

For each receipt you submit between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, you’ll get one entry for weekly drawings for restaurant gift cards and Love Local Rochester swag, along with grand prize drawings for $100, $250, and $500 dining packages.

“We are really excited to bring back Foodie February,” Jenna O’Dell, the events coordinator with the Rochester DDA said in a press release. “Foodie February allows our community to support our restaurants and get rewarded in the process – it’s a win-win!”

The grand prize winners will be announced and contacted on March 1, 2023. Participating restaurants include Bakehouse 46, Rochester Brunch House, Rochester Mills Beer Co., Dessert Oasis Coffee Roasters, O’Connor’s Public House, Georgio’s Pizza, Pure Green Rochester, and others.
