Join us for a free lunch! Feeding the 5000 Austin is a free feast for thousands, made entirely from fresh, top quality produce that would have otherwise been wasted.

On October 19, Austin Resource Recovery, Central Texas Food Bank, and Keep Austin Fed will be hosting a community event on the south lawn of the Texas Capitol to increase food waste awareness by serving a free lunch to thousands of Austinites made entirely from fresh food that would otherwise have been wasted. 

Additionally, Feeding the 5000 Austin will feature a variety of activities, including cooking demonstrations, guest speakers, community organizations, and more.
