Cause of the Quarter: Central Texas Food Bank

Cause of the Quarter: Central Texas Food Bank

At The Cupcake Bar, a huge part of our mission is to give back to our local community. Having been in business for 14 years, we know how fortunate we are to call Austin, TX home. We’re so proud to live and work in a city that’s truly representative of Texas hospitality at its best, which is why we are so excited to announce our Cause of the Quarter for Q1! Each quarter we will highlight one local organization. From supporting to donating to spreading the word, our hope is to give back to a community that has supported us time and time again. Now through the end of March, $1 from the sale of our cupcake kits will go to our Cause of the Quarter.


To kick off Q1, we are focusing on an organization that has been at the front line of hunger relief. The Central Texas Food Bank brought meals to 54 million in our community last year, up from 42.5 million the previous year. As Central Texas continues to be among the fastest growing regions in the nation, it brings with it challenges for many locals alongside the pandemic and countless other disasters. Learn more on how The Central Texas Food Bank is leading our community in the fight against hunger.
