The Weekly Dirt
Happy Thanksgiving!
Now more than ever, this Thanksgiving we are reflecting on the things we are grateful for this year. Through all the challenges and times of hardship, we at SFC have been so thankful for all the support our community has given us.

You are the reason why we are able to do our work building a more just and regenerative food system for Central Texas. Your support has helped us make sure healthy, local food will always be accessible for all our neighbors. Thank you for your partnership, and we wish you happy and healthy holiday.
