Dining Out on Oct. 1st

Commissioner Staples joined us Tuesday for a press conference and tour.

Here’s the skinny: On Wednesday, Oct. 1st he’s asking Texans to dine out during the GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up. This delicious event celebrates local food and wine producers and many participating restaurants will donate a portion of the day’s proceeds to Texas food banks.

Participating restaurants will offer special Texas menu items, a fixed-priced Texas meal, a Texas food and wine pairing or a Texas wine list. It’s all about our great state on Oct. 1st.

After the press conference, David, our President and CEO, invited the Commissioner on a special tour. He mentioned his gratitude for CAFB, especially with our efforts in reaching hungry Central Texans, and was also amazed at the continued generosity of our community.

On Oct. 1st, Staples will be dining out at participating GO TEXAN Restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner – what a great idea!

§ One Response to Dining Out on Oct. 1st

  • Jennifer says:

    Our Dell Mgmt team volunteered yesterday and it was a great experience. The one idea I walked away with is that while protecting and providing for our people can be done while protecting our environment. There was an enormous amount of plastic bags being thrown away that can be easily recycled/reused. I understand it isn’t easy to separate and space is limited in the warehouse but a weekly drop off to a local HEB can get those bags recycled vs. going to our landfills. One more step forward to protecting our good green earth and our great people!
