Locally sourced food is practically nonexistent in many communities. Luckily the Austin community has an organization to change this, Sustainable Food Center. We have had the opportunity to work with Sustainable Food Center for a number of events including our Duel of the Chefs in which we(Independence, Broken Arrow Ranch, Mansion @Judges’ Hill) raised nearly $1200 dollars for SFC.
This sleety past weekend we had the chance to support the Sustainable Foodies whom act as an awareness and fundraising arm for SFC. For just $20 dollars a month members get the chance to support a great cause and enjoy some great perks:
- First-to-know about SFC events and opportunities such as classes, workshops and special offers from SFC partners like Resolution Gardens.
- News alerts on the local and national sustainable food movement.
- Acknowledgment as a donor on SFC’s website.
- Invitation to participate in quarterly gatherings, from breakfast at the market to happy hours at local restaurants to intimate farm tours.
- SFC t-shirt.
- Pre-sale on discounted tickets to Farm to Plate, SFC’s annual sell-out fundraiser at Barr Mansion.
We are proud to partner with SFC and the Sustainable Foodies, and if you like good food and good brew you should support them too.
I also volunteer at the SFC Farmer’s market at the Triangle on most Wednesdays, stop in for some locally grown produce and say hi! Ill be the giant with the beard!
