Central Texas Food Bank Unveils Loewy Law Firm Garden Center
The Loewy Law Firm Garden Center officially opened at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, July 15th. The garden center is a weather-protected space within the larger Central Texas Food Bank Garden and offers cutting-edge nutrition education and gardening programs to residents of Austin and Central Texas.
The unveiling represents another step toward the Central Texas Food Bank’s goal of a hunger-free community. The facility will be a place where locals can gain nutritional knowledge, learn about healthy eating practices, and improve their culinary aptitude.
Sari Vatske, the President and CEO of the Central Texas Food Bank, spoke about the values and commitments shared by the food bank and Loewy Law Firm and the importance of providing nutritious food for all. “We extend our gratitude to Adam Loewy of The Loewy Law Firm, AMD and all the other donors who contributed to this project for helping us take next step toward a hunger-free community,” Vatske said.
The garden center features a covered pavilion, which will serve as a space for both cooking demonstrations using produce grown in the garden as well as fundraisers and other community events. There are also storage areas for gardening tools and supplies, an area designed for washing, processing, and packing fresh produce, and bathrooms for volunteers and visitors.
