In response to the major floods occurring across central Texas from nonstop rain this week, beloved Austin burger chain P. Terry’s is bringing one of its food trucks to Kingsland, Texas to give away burgers on Saturday, October 20.
P. Terry’s burger truck will be parked at the Highland Lakes Church of Christ at 2310 Ranch Road 1431 at Kingsland starting at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow. The food truck will remain there until it runs out of food.
While P. Terry’s co-owner Patrick Terry often donates to charities and nonprofits like its often donating days-worth of proceeds to charities and nonprofits from all of its locations (its recent Day of Caring raised nearly $30,000 for the ARC Capital Area), this is the first time the burger chain is responding to a natural disaster.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued state disaster declarations for 18 counties in the state this week because of flooding and severe weather that began earlier this month because of the flooding. The City of Austin closed several parks and trials, including the Butler and Barton Creek Greenbelt for now.
