An Important Update Regarding the 13th Annual Farm to Plate
It is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel Farm to Plate, our annual fundraising event, for the first time in its 13-year history due to the COVID-19 crisis. Along with keeping all Farm to Plate attendees safe, we are sensitive to the immense challenges our amazing chef and restaurant partners are facing during this unprecedented time.
However, as long lines grow at grocery stores and demand for food in our community spikes, our work is more critical than ever.
- Our Downtown and Sunset Valley farmer’s markets remain open as essential food-access points, using even more SFC resources to ensure the safety of all market participants.
- We are strongly advocating on behalf of growers to be sure that locally grown food reaches those who need it most, including folks who receive food assistance and may not be able to find what they need at overburdened grocery stores.
- We are redoubling our food access efforts through Double Up Food Bucks and mailing seeds to our Spread the Harvest program participants to ensure broad access to healthy food for everyone in our community during this time of crisis.
The cancellation of our fundraising event this late in our fiscal year is having a severely negative impact on our ability to raise money for our vital services now. Help us reach our goal of raising $300,000 - the same amount we had hoped to raise through our Farm to Plate event.
With your partnership, we can continue our critical support of farmers who are facing unbelievable challenges and low-income families who have been the most impacted by this pandemic.
Thank you so much for your support of Sustainable Food Center — in good times and in these uncertain times.
We’ll look forward to envisioning Farm to Plate 2021, when we can look back on this crisis and celebrate the resilience of our chefs, our growers, and our community.

Brazos Hall is a turn-of-the-century warehouse building at the corner of 4th and Brazos. Converted from a 1900's grain mill into an elegant mixed-use event venue with restored long-leaf pine floors, brick walls and wood rafters, Brazos Hall is a venue unlike any other in the heart of downtown Austin's hotel district.
