Several Austin restaurants have begun fundraising efforts following the horrific school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24, where 21 people — 19 students and two teachers — were killed and 17 people injured. This weekend, a handful of restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to help support the victims and their families.
In addition, chef José Andrés’s nonprofit World Central Kitchen set up shop in Uvalde to serve free meals for people, as well as employees of flower shops and funeral homes. The Texas Tribune has rounded up numerous other ways to help survivors, victims, and their families as well.
