Savinos plans Gifts of Hope benefit

Savinos Grill will be participating in the annual Gifts of Hope campaign to benefit the Belmont Food Pantry on Wednesday, when the restaurant at 449 Common St. will be donating 10 percent of its proceeds from the evening. The nonprofit food pantry has been open since 1992, according to its website, and is dependent on support from residents, schools, churches and organizations to provide assistance to local families in need. Savinos, which serves Italian and Mediterranean dishes, is open from 5 to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
