    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.)
    Mon.-Fri., 11am-4pm, until Thanksgiving break

    White Truffle Festival

    We know truffles are a thing, and a much sought-after thing, so we'd be remiss if we didn't tell you that It's Italian Cucina has their fifth annual white truffle celebration going on. You know how good the food is, right? And that it'll be accompanied by Prunotto wines? Yes – and you can get fresh Urbani white truffles on top, too – on top of the tagliatelle with parmesan cream sauce and the sautéed lamb chop, if not on top of the wine). See website for reservations.
    Through Nov. 22. Prices vary.
