INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – You can indulge in Indiana’s signature food for just $5.

It’s all part of NUVO’s “Indy Tenderloin Week.” From April 23 through April 29, more than 30 restaurants around Indianapolis will offer a pork tenderloin sandwich for $5.

But it’s not just about having a delicious Hoosier delicacy (although that doesn’t hurt!)—20 percent of restaurant registration fees and sponsorships go to Second Helpings, a nonprofit group that helps thousands of Hoosiers get meals every day.

Check out some of these participating restaurants:

“We didn’t want to do the standard tenderloin that everybody does,” said Cragi Mariutto, the owner of Shoefly Public House. “We don’t have a tenderloin on our menu, so we wanted to take the opportunity to do something fun with the dish.”
