Starting on Thursday, having a nice meal at one of dozens of Italian restaurants in the city will help out the people of the central Italy earthquake.

Nearly 300 people died in the earthquake that hit about two hours northeast of Rome on Aug. 24.

The quake destroyed a number of historic villages including Amatrice, the home of the famous pasta dish Amatriciana.

If you order the dish this month at participating Toronto restaurants, a donation will be made to the Canadian Red Cross Italy Earthquake Appeal.
