Easy Ways to Give Back During the Holiday Season


These past few years have been difficult for Central Texans in need. As families struggle to get back on their feet and recover from the pandemic, the holidays are even tougher. You can help make the holidays brighter for Central Texans facing hunger. It’s easy to get started:

1. It can be tough to shop for the person who has it all. Why not surprise them by making a holiday gift in their honor. Thanks to generous matching community partners, for every $25 you donate, you can help provide 200 meals for Central Texas families in need. Make your donation today!

2. Let us mark one thing off your list with Central Texas Food Bank Holiday Cards. Let your loved ones know you’re thinking about them by making a donation on their behalf. Spread the spirit of generosity and order your holiday cards here.

3. Let your friends and family know how passionate you are about fighting hunger with a Fight Hunger Food Bank t-shirt, a tote bag for when they go shopping or even a Food Bank baby onesie. Check out all of our merch and get your Food Bank swag here.

4. Put smiles on the faces of that special someone and a family in need when you purchase a gift through Amazon Smile. When you purchase your gift through Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the purchase price on eligible items to the Food Bank.

5. Picking up groceries for your holiday meals? Help families gather around a full table when you shop at Whole Foods Market during their Shop Local, Give Local campaign through December 14. Give back when you shop local products or by making a donation for the Food Bank at the register.

6. Help your favorite people stay on track with their new year’s resolution with registration to Austin Fit Resolution Race. Whether they participate in the 5K or the marathon, each registration helps families in need start the year off strong with nourishing meals. Get all the registration details here. If you prefer to volunteer at the race, you can sign up to volunteer here.

7. Celebrate the holidays with a bottle of Joel Gott wine. Every bottle purchased helps fight hunger in our community. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle is donated to the Food Bank.
