The Food Must Go On is a virtual event celebrating the people who are committed to nourishing our community in the face of unprecedented challenges.

Hosted by TV Host and Media Expert Lauren Petrowski, you'll enjoy interviews, cooking demos, farm tours and more with chefs, farmers, and foodies rallying to raise funds for Sustainable Food Center. Check out our full line-up below!

During this event and through Giving Tuesday Now on May 5th, we're hoping to raise $30,000 to support our programs that make healthy, local food accessible to all. Thanks to a generous match from Still Water Foundation and Tito's Handmade Vodka, your gift will be DOUBLED, helping SFC make up revenue lost from the cancellation of our Farm to Plate fundraiser.

Grab a meal from one of our favorite local restaurants and celebrate the best of Austin's culinary community!
