Contact us to get involved!


Each year in more than 60 cities across the nation, more than 3,000 restaurants participate in Dining Out For Life (DOFL) and donate a portion of their proceeds to help raise more than $4 million per year for local AIDS service organizations.

Dining Out For Life Boston benefits Community Research Initiative (CRI), an independent, nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to leading the way in HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C clinical research; ensuring access to lifesaving medications and health insurance coverage for Massachusetts residents in need who are HIV-positive, have tuberculosis, or who have other infectious diseases; and disseminating state-of-the-art treatment information and education about how to access and maintain health insurance and health benefits coverage for people in need.

Over the past 30 years, CRI has contributed to the FDA approval of nearly all of the currently available HIV treatments and forever changed the direction of HIV/AIDS treatment around the world.

Through the management of the Massachusetts HIV Drug Assistance Program (HDAP), clinical research, and outreach and education programs, CRI serves more than 12,000 Massachusetts residents infected or affected by HIV/AIDS every single year.


These restaurants are donating 25% of their proceeds on November 7 to CRI. Make your reservation today!
