    This Downtown bastion of deli excellence in Republic Square Park is celebrating our national day of dining al fresco with two special Picnic Packs benefitting the Austin Food & Wine Alliance. Each picnic ($25) feeds two people. The Veggie Picnic includes a burrata board, fig and brie sandwich, Torres black truffle chips, and two chocolate chip cookies. The Meat Picnic boasts a charcuterie board, jambon beurre sandwich, Torres foie gras chips, and two chocolate chip cookies. Pro tip: Maybe get some of that Frorange of theirs to wash it all down with, too? That stuff is tasty-and-a-half.

    Tumble 22: National Picnic Day

    Tumble 22’s popular Chicken Picnic family meal makes a special Friday appearance at all five locations for this day of outdoorsy celebration. Typically available on Mondays and Tuesdays only, each Chicken Picnic includes eight pieces of bone-in chicken or 12 crispy tenders, two housemade sides, and a mini pie for just $25. Verdict: Here, where the purveyors of peppery poultry offer options of heat that range from "wimpy" to "stupid hot," they're gonna chicken you up right.

    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.
