Benefiting the Central Texas Food Bank, Austin Restaurant Weeks is underway through Sept. 17.

The gist

Austin Restaurant Weeks is a two-week-long annual fundraiser wherein officials from participating restaurants, bars and breweries in the area donate a portion of specially priced meals purchased at their locations to the Central Texas Food Bank.

How it works

Each participating location offers a prix fixe menu with lunch, dinner or libration options. A set dollar donation—between $3-$9—from each meal will be collected, which will go toward providing meals to Central Texans who face hunger on a regular basis, officials announced in a news release Aug. 29. In 2022, Austin Restaurant Weeks raised more than $130,000 that went directly to the Central Texas Food Bank.

The available options include:
  • A two- to three-course lunch priced at $20
  • A three- to four-course dinner priced at either $40 or $60
  • Specialty menu items at various prices
  • Tito’s Handmade Vodka-based cocktails at various prices
  • Establishment’s choice of beer or wine offered at various prices
