Austinites are known for valuing their community, and restaurants are no exception. With a vibrant nonprofit network and dynamic dining scene, it only makes sense that the two work together. This means Austin restaurants, bars, and food trucks often help raise money for good causes, through dish specials, partial sale donations, and events.
From coffee shops with a cause, like My Name is Joe and Patika, to charitable bars like King Bee and Sellers, the dining scene supports many different aspects of the nonprofit community. Some restaurants, like Cane Rosso or The ABGB, even have personal nonprofits and giving programs, and grilled cheese food truck Melted sends all of its profits to an international organization. For other feel-good meals, visit a restaurant that participates in Mealshare, where customers can order specific dishes and the organization will donates meals to children in need.
