This year has proven to be one of unprecedented change around the world. Change that has deeply impacted our lives and communities, and exposed the cracks in our national food system. Earlier this year, as grocery store shelves emptied out, and stores boarded up their windows, our work has become more vital than ever before. And our commitment to building a just and regenerative food system has not waivered.
That’s why Sustainable Food Center is participating in #GivingTuesday. This is a day when we can all come together through simple acts of generosity and acknowledge the power of giving.
And when you make a gift today, your donation is MATCHED by a generous $25,000 challenge grant from Tito’s Handmade Vodka. All gifts made now through December 31st will be DOUBLED!
Your donation of any size is tax-deductible, and 100% of funds go directly to our programs that ensure healthy, local, affordable food will always be accessible for everyone in our community.
With your help, we will be able to do so much. Your #GivingTuesday gift will help SFC:
- Support the long-term health of Central Texans by offering free cooking and nutrition classes, and free gardening education and resources to our local community.
- Increase access to healthy, local food by providing Double Up Food Bucks for SNAP and WIC participants at farmers’ markets and mobile markets throughout Austin.
- Support Central Texas farmers and ranchers by offering business support services, buyer matchmaking, and customer connections at our SFC Farmers’ Markets.
- Advance policies that support regenerative agriculture and food security for communities that face systemic barriers to healthy food.
In this time of crisis, your support is appreciated more than ever. Your generous gift makes sure local food can continue its essential role in all our lives: nourishing our community.
