Sustainable Food Center

Founded in 1993, with roots dating back to 1975 as Austin Community Gardens, Sustainable Food Center (SFC) works to cultivate a healthy community by strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food.  Through its Grow Local Program, SFC supports home, school, and community gardeners with classes, trainings, and resources and provides schools and low-income home gardeners with free gardening materials to reduce the financial barriers to gardening.  Its Farm Direct Program promotes access to fresh, healthy food by connecting local farmers to schools, worksites, and food service operations and to Austin shoppers through four of the largest weekly farmers’ markets in Texas.  It also runs The Happy Kitchen/La Cocina Alegre, which offers community cooking and nutrition education classes.
