#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that brings people together in collective action to improve their communities and help create a better world. Falling on the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
Why Give on #GivingTuesday?
At SFC we envision a future where Central Texas is one of the most sustainable and equitable food systems in the nation. A place where small-scale regenerative farms have all the support they need to thrive, and where healthy, local food is available and affordable for all.
But did you know, currently less than 1% of the food consumed in Central Texas was grown in Central Texas? And at the same time, almost 20% of Central Texas families struggle to access healthy food.
That why we need your support this Giving Tuesday.
- Develop a regional food action plan - bringing groups together to partner on ways to increase access to local food in Central Texas.
- Build a food advocacy team - championing for large-scale policy change, making it easier for farmers to thrive and for all residents to access local food.
- Support local farms - giving farmers the resources they need to sustain themselves and thrive.
Make this #GivingTuesday your day to give back. Donate to SFC and help us build a sustainable Central Texas so our environment can thrive.

"Food is a basic human need. We are passionate about playing our role in feeding the world. Healthy, nutritious, and grown without chemicals. Food is not a luxury and it’s not a “want to have”. We want to grow food that feeds real people. People in our world." - Katherine Tanner, Hat and Heart Farm
