Read time: 2 minutes

The realities of the COVID-19 pandemic hit close to home for many Central Texans. With increased unemployment, the Central Texas Food Bank has seen a sharp increase in the need for assistance.

We’re happy to report, in partnership with its agents and staff, Realty Austin surpassed their fundraising goal of $25k in support of the Central Texas Food Bank. But it doesn’t stop there! In addition, the brokerage pledged to match the fund, donating an additional $25k to the Central Texas Food Bank on Thursday, April 23, making all campaign donations twice as meaningful. Yvette Boatwright, Co-Owner of Realty Austin, gratefully gives thanks to participating community donors. “We can not say thank you enough to our amazing agents, friends, family, and everyone in the community that donated so that nobody goes hungry in Central Texas during these uncertain times.”

New restrictions have caused the Central Texas Food Bank to dramatically change the way they run their program. Traditionally, the nonprofit would receive food donations from grocery stores and other retailers but with resources not being available to donate, the Central Texas Food Bank has had to purchase the majority of food on their own. These changes paired with an increased need for food among central texans out of work has led to specialized drive through distribution systems around Central Texas. Those in need can ride through, pop their car trunk, and receive  a 28 lb “Emergency Food Box” including things such as whole wheat pasta, peanut butter, rice, tuna or chicken as well as fruits and vegetables.

Monetized community donations have played a huge role in providing these emergency food boxes. Consider making a donation today to help us feed our neighbors in need.

$30 Donation = 28 lb Emergency Food Box
