Food Access Resources from SF

We must admit that things are improving, but we still have a long way to go in dealing with this pandemic.

The Sustainable Food Center has compiled a comprehensive list of food access services for Central Texans, including farmers’ markets, CSAs, delivery choices, and everything in between, to help you keep healthy food on your table.

If you’re able to help, they welcome online donations to help farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. You can find all the information you need on their website.

Austin, Red Beans, and Ricely Yours

This community initiative, led by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg aims to provide free meals (red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austin residents in need.

“On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-cooked supper delivered to you with safety in mind,” according to their Facebook announcement.

“There is no judgment, and the form is completely anonymous.” We would like to make a tiny section of your day a little bit better if you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a difficult time.”

Alternatively, if you’d like to volunteer your time by driving, baking sweets, or donating cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please contact us.

ATX Sliders: Grand Opening

Delectable Innovations, an Austin-based restaurant business, debuts its newest food truck, ATX Sliders, at the iconic Saxon Pub in South Austin. This kitchen-on-wheels will be helmed by Valentina’s Tex Mex co-founder chef Michael Lerner and Carlos Cruz, former executive chef of Hilton Austin, and will serve up a variety of gourmet beef, chicken, and vegetarian sliders, with each purchase of the Slider of the Month donating $2 to the monthly nonprofit partner.

 (June’s slider is a Green Chile Pork Slider, which includes a pork patty, provolone cheese, hatch green chile, baby arugula, pickled onions, and green chili aioli.)
