Hunger Action Month Way of the Day: Go Out On the Town.
September 3, 2010 § 1 Comment
Listening to live reggae music, choosing a hand-crafted bowl, or enjoying hundreds of hot sauces are but a few of the creative ways our community helps nourish our hungry Central Texas neighbors. Throughout the year, the donations given at more than 600 community events provide hundreds of thousands of meals to hungry Central Texans, and our signature events are great opportunities to partner. September is no different, and we have two special opportunities for you to help:
Visit Macy’s at Barton Creek Mall on the 25th to purchase a $5 coupon book as part of Macy’s “Shop for a Cause.” For every purchase of a Shop for a Cause savings pass (within the coupon book), a portion of the proceeds support the Food Bank.
Make a date to dine-out with the Go Texan Restaurant Round Up, where proceeds benefit your local food bank. Click here to find out which restaurants are participating, and see their delicious Texas-grown menu. From Waco to Wimberley, there’s probably a participating restaurant in a town near you.
TAKE A TOUR: CAFB is hosting an open house on Monday, September 13. Learn how we distribute millions of pounds of nutritious food to hungry Central Texans with a behind the scenes look at our warehouse and Teaching Garden. It’s free! Email Emily Babb, Donor Relations Manager, at ebabb[at]austinfoodbank.org to sign up.
