Best Local Food Boosters: Austin Food & Wine Alliance

Most people know them for their parties – Live Fire!, Wine & Swine, and Official Drink of Austin – all highlights on our town's culinary calendar and known for their unique ability to attract the best chefs and mixologists from Texas and beyond. But some still don't know the reason why so many pros say yes to the AFWA. It's simple. With their culinary grant program and high school culinary career conferences, the nonprofit is essential to keeping our local foodways strong. And that's a reason for celebration, even when the parties are over.
