Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining®: Eat for a Cause

Through Visit Orlando, $1 from every meal served during Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining benefits one or more local nonprofits that help people in need. Which means that, in addition to offering outstanding meals at outstanding prices, Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining provides you with the opportunity to support outstanding causes.

In 2022, donated funds will focus on an organization that is helping to expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Central Florida: The Able Trust. Proceeds from this year’s program will support The Able Trust’s High School High Tech (HSHT) program in Orange County, providing the opportunity to explore jobs or postsecondary education leading to in-demand careers for high school students with disabilities. Central Florida is the largest region with 20 program locations, including all Orange County Public Schools.

To ensure this donation has widespread impact throughout our community, Visit Orlando will also be allocating a small percentage of funds to a local organization in each Orange County district that also supports this cause.
