LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

World Water Week starts today and runs through March 27th, and as a part of this effort to bring awareness to the global crisis of a lack of potable water several Los Angeles restaurants are participating in the Tap Project.During this week, guests dining at participating restaurants can donate $1 or more for their glass of water with their meal--the drinkable water that is typically free for us, but an unavailable luxury to people all over the globe.

The money raised as a part of the Tap Project this week will go to support UNICEF's efforts to "bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world."

Of the 920 participating nationwide, there are several LA-area restaurants taking part, including 8 Oz Burger Bar, Lucques, Real Food Daily, Hugo's, AOC, Craft, Swingers, and more.
