SUSTAINABLE FOOD CENTER

The Sustainable Food Center (SFC) creates opportunities for individuals to make healthy food choices and participate in a vibrant local food system. Through organic gardening, relationships with area farmers, cooking classes and nutrition education, the center gives children and adults access to locally grown food and helps improve the long-term health of Central Texans and our environment.

The bank is a major sponsor of the SFC's annual Farm to Table event, which features more than 25 Central Texas chefs who cook using locally grown and produced food. Bank employees have turned out to help at other SFC events.

 

FCBT employees work on SFC garden.

In the fall of 2016, Farm Credit Bank of Texas employees participated in a volunteer day at the SFC community herb and teaching gardens. Pictured are volunteers picking mature seed pods from a purple hyacinth vine. The group removed the beans from the pods for seed packets that the SFC distributes.
