Pickup surplus pastries and sandwiches at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (13376 N. Highway 183, Suite 800, Austin, TX 78750) any time between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m., Wednesdays. 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 512-219-9256 for directions, if you're running late, or can't make the pickup.
Drop off at North Austin Foundation, North Lamar and Prairie Trail (1000 Prairie Trail Austin, TX 78758), a shelter that provides transitional housing for up to 10 people seeking drug and alcohol abuse treatment and hosts 12-step meetings. Enter through the front door and drop off with staff in the office or on the counter near the entrance to the meeting hall.
Please request a bin for bread and insulated bag for cold food from Keep Austin Fed. Bring clean and empty bin to swap with Coffee Bean staff.
