Hunger is a serious issue here in Central Texas, where 1 in 7 of our neighbors—and 1 in 5 kids—can’t be sure where their next meal will come from. That’s why Austin Restaurant Weeks is such an exciting event. It’s a delicious and simple way to help fight hunger in our community while enjoying some of the best food and drink Austin has to offer. The last ARW prior to the pandemic featured 130 establishments and raised enough to provide 893,000 meals for Central Texans in need.

During this 10-day dining extravaganza, you’ll find specially priced lunches, dinners, cocktails, wine and beer at participating restaurants, bars and breweries throughout the greater Austin area.

For restaurateurs, it’s a great opportunity to help fight hunger while providing diners who might not be regular patrons with an easy, economical way to dine with them. And for diners, it’s a way to help our neighbors in need while enjoying some of the best dishes this amazing food-driven city has to offer.

100% to Fighting Hunger

Diners are not directly solicited for donations. And since Austin Restaurant Weeks is planned entirely by Food Bank staff and volunteers, 100% of the contribution from each meal or cocktail goes directly to fighting hunger here in Central Texas. All you have to do is enjoy a delicious meal or beverage to help others get the meals they need.

Participating restaurants will be offering one or more of the following options: a two to three-course lunch priced at $20 per person; a three to four-course dinner priced at either $35 or $50 per person. Many will also be offering specials on Tito’s® Handmade Vodka-based cocktails, as well as beer and wine.

Austinites have always come through for the Food Bank to help us provide nutritious food for the nearly 75,000 people we serve each week.

Thanks for coming to the table to support the fight against hunger here in Central Texas.
