    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.

    Hopfields: Free School Lunch Program

    You know, parents, that you want to eat at Hopfields anyway, right? Now you can get lunch there … and your kiddos (ages 12 and younger) can get their lunch gratis. It's a middle-of-the-school-day special that features, for the kiddos, choice of a main item with one or two sides and a juice box, plus (studious bonus, here!) school supplies like note pads, #2 pencils, crayons, color pencils, calculators, and glue sticks available on request. Let your spawn work and nom PB&J or grilled cheese or buttered noodles on the extended patio, while you tuck into something more grown-uply delicious. (Note: We personally recommend the avocado tartine or duck rueben for maximum yum.)

    National Pizza Month with Hoboken Pie

    Did you know that Hoboken Pie, the popular local bastion of Jersey-style pizza, is offering 25% off all pizzas ordered online or through the Hoboken Pie app, throughout October? They are – just remember to use the promo code PIZZAMONTH and you'll knock a quarter off your price and give them something to smile about. Because, says co-founder Matt Getchell, "We’ve really felt the power of community this year," and they wanted to express some gratitude. Cheers!

    Pig Week 2020

    OK, so Pig Week is actually seven weeks, during which Central Texas Pig Rescue's compassionate small-business friends will be offering specials, with proceeds going to the CTPR Expansion Project. Check the calendar, follow CTPR's social media, and sign up for the newsletter to get reminders and updates. Then, simply indulge in your local faves like Rebel Cheese, Plow Burger, Bouldin Creek Cafe, and more, and share on Instagram by tagging @centraltexaspigrescue and the business' account using #pigweek2020 to be entered into raffles. It's an excellent way to "swine and dine," if you will, for a great cause.

    Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Austin

    This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.
