Despite the weather "foodies" stepped out Tuesday night to fight hunger in the area.

Patrons who enjoyed a meal at St. Johns, The Meeting Place, and Alleia Monday and Tuesday night helped out the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.

The restaurants donated 15-percent of total bill sales to the food bank.

Organizers for the event say it's an honor to be able to help those assisting the community.

Organizers with the Foodies Fight Hunger drive say there are already plans for future events with the food bank.
