It’s been quite the year for Texas. Extreme weather, senseless tragedy, and an endless news cycle have rattled our dear state. But it is in the face of these hard times that we’ve watched our incredible community come together to help one another in amazing ways. Farmhouse Delivery exists to serve our community in Texas through food. We are taking this #GivingTuesday as an opportunity to shout out our favorite causes and community members making strides to make Texas a better place. Read on for more ideas on how you can support our favorite causes and the things you can do to help us make a bigger impact!
Our Favorite Ways to Contribute
Donate Your Bushel
Going on vacation? Instead of simply skipping your delivery, tell our friends in customer service that you’d like to donate your bushel. While you’re relaxing on the beach, you can feel great that the food you would have been receiving for your weekly meal planning is going to Texans in need. Not due for a vacation, but still feeling generous? We can always help get your donations into the right hands, simply ask our team by contacting [email protected].
We are in constant partnership with many organizations across Texas by donating food and funds. We donate excess food in our warehouse on a regular basis and are constantly innovating to reduce food waste and hunger in our state. These are the organizations your donations are supporting:
Integrity Academy (Austin, TX), Caritas of Austin (Austin, TX), Stephen F. Austin Senior High School (Houston, TX), Keep Austin Fed (Austin, TX), Central Texas Food Bank

Participate in Fundraising Events
Events are one of our favorite ways to engage the community in charitable efforts. We raised over $6,000 for Brighter Bites at our annual Fais Do-Do event in February. This past October, we helped our friends at Articulture raise over $2,000 for the Texas Farm Bureau at the Articulture Pig Roast Fundraiser. After Hurricane Harvey devastated the Texas coast, our amazing community helped us donate more than $10,000 in meals and monetary donations to those affected.
When you buy a ticket to any of our fundraising events, all profits and proceeds go to feeding our neighbors in Texas. Want to attend our next fundraising event? Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates!
