Amplify Austin for SFC
Amplify Austin for SFC - Today!
Amplify Austin, our city-wide day of giving starts today at 6pm! We need your help to raise $22,000 to support our local farmers, increase access to healthy, local food, and advance policies that support a healthy community for us all.

The pandemic and recent winter storm revealed just how critical a thriving local food system is to the wellbeing of our community. When grocery store shelves sat bare, we turned to local food to keep our families fed. Now, it's our turn to fight for our local food system, so it can continue its essential role in all our lives: nourishing our community.

Amplify Austin for SFC today, and help us grow a just and regenerative food system that builds a healthier future for us all.
