Why should I provide an email for ticket purchases?
We are 100% committed to the flawless execution of your event.

The email contains pertinent event information which the guest can refer to up to the day of the event and can be used at tax time as a receipt for tax purposes.
The 24th annual Food for Thought tasting event is scheduled for September 25, 2019 at the iconic ACL Live at The Moody Theater. Austin's most celebrated chefs will once again donate the exquisite cuisine that is the cornerstone of our event. Their generosity ensures that the vast majority of support raised at the event will go directly towards serving Communities In Schools students. Join us for a lively evening of delectable culinary creations, live music in the world-renowned Moody Theater, and an exciting live auction. This is a night to celebrate the success of Communities In Schools students and raise financial support for critical dropout prevention services.
At Communities In Schools, we amplify the power of each student's potential by connecting them to caring adults and community resources designed to help them succeed. We place dedicated, full-time social workers on school campuses with high concentrations of students living in poverty. By working directly inside schools, we support students in ways that go beyond the classroom. We build lasting relationships with partners across our community to help students succeed in school today, so they can go further tomorrow.
