Amplify Austin for SFC Today!
It's time to Amplify Austin! Our city-wide day of giving is happening now, and will conclude at 6pm on March 5, 2021.
We need your help to raise $22,000 by 6 pm on March 5, 2021 to support our local farmers, increase access to healthy, local food in Austin, and advance policies that support a healthy community for us all.
For more than 45 years, Sustainable Food Center has worked to improve the health of our community and our environment through local food.
The pandemic and recent winter storm revealed just how critical a thriving local food system is to the wellbeing of our community. When grocery store shelves sat bare, our local farmers were there providing the healthy food we needed to feed our families. Through arctic temperatures and a snowstorm rarely seen in Texas, our farmers fought to preserve their crops, so they could continue to bring their food to you.
Now, it’s our turn to fight for a local food system that supports us all — through the good times and bad.
The unique work of SFC builds bridges between our health, our environment, food access, and food production. With your help, we can create a thriving and resilient food system in Central Texas.
We see a future where most of the food we eat in Central Texas will be grown by the local farmers and ranchers who protect our environment through their growing practices. These farmers would be rewarded with healthy businesses and families, and everyone, regardless of means, would be nourished by this fresh, local food.
Aided by your support, we want to eliminate the historic, systemic barriers to healthy food that many people in our community experience. Fueled by healthy local food, individuals and families can thrive, with reduced rates of food insecurity and diet-related diseases.
Just imagine how your support now can help us create this vision for the future. Your Amplify Austin gift will help us grow a bountiful food system in Central Texas that will nourish our community and our environment for years to come. Early giving is open - donate today!
