It’s time to raise your fork so others can raise their hammers to help seniors living in Oakhurst.

Restaurants for Repairs is back once again, and local restaurants are giving a cut of their profits to support Decatur’s annual MLK Service Project.

The project is a volunteer initiative to help low-income Decatur seniors. Each year, over the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, volunteers with the project repair seniors’ homes, doing yard work and adding handicap accessible features.

The annual foodie fundraising event will be held on Oct. 18

“Several homes will receive large-scale repairs thanks to the participating restaurants and their patrons,” the event announcement says.

The participating restaurants are:

20 percent Donors:

  • The Corner Pub
  • Raging Burrito & Taco
  • The Square Pub

10 percent Donors:

  • Brick Store Pub
  • Butter & Cream
  • Cafe Lily
  • Cakes & Ale
  • Farm Burger
  • Kimball House
  • Leon’s Full Service
  • Mac McGee
  • Mojo Pizza
  • Parker’s on Ponce
  • Steinbeck’s Ale House
  • Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe
  • Universal Joint
