Pickup surplus pastries and sandwiches at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (3718 North Lamar, Austin TX 78756) any time between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monays and Thursdays. Please avoid rush hour (between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.). Expect between 10-20 pastries, plus 5-10 sandwiches that should stay cool during transport. The pickup requires volunteers to use bins to pickup the food, which Keep Austin Fed will supply. Enter the front door and tell staff you're there to pickup the surplus food. Staff will bag and pack the food in a plastic bin they keep behind the counter. Swap your empty bin for the full bin. An insulated grocery bag or small cooler is recommended for transporting sandwiches. Please call 512-382-9701 for directions, if you're running late, or can't make the pickup.
