Since 2012, the Austin Food & Wine Alliance (AFWA) has awarded $322,500 in funds to 49 local grant recipients. Through innovative programs, these nonprofits, organizations, and small businesses keep local food systems secure, provide essential services to the disadvantaged, and lead the charge towards a more sustainable future. Their innovative and difficult work has made Central Texas — and the world — a better place to live and eat.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put an unprecedented burden on these essential organizations. Local artisan businesses are facing a steep drop in income. Charities are seeing increased demand for services. Restaurants are struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing climate, as are the farms that supply them. Our fundraising events that provide the funding to support these businesses and organizations have been canceled.
Your donation during Luck Presents: Prime Cuts will ensure that these crucial businesses and nonprofits can weather this storm and offer relief when it is needed most. It will also enable AFWA to support the next generation of culinary innovators. Thanks for supporting our Central Texas community!
