Food Drive

2017 Food Drive

With 400,000 attendees, the Austin Trail of Lights offers a perfect opportunity to make an enormous impact on the Central Texas community. This year, the Trail of Lights Foundation is partnering with the Central Texas Food Bank in our challenge to all attendees to bring a canned good to the Trail any public night of the Trail. With the support of Trail-goers, we can reach our goal to collect 25,000 MEALS for the Central Texas Food Bank, that’s enough food to feed 6 families for a year!

Most Needed Items:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Chicken Breast or Tuna
  • Canned Low Sodium Vegetables
  • Canned Fruits in its own Juice (no sugar added)
  • Dry Pinto Beans
  • Brown Rice
  • 100% Whole Grain Cereal

We’ll have drop off bins nightly at the Trail of Lights entrance. So, help us feed the hungry by bringing a can of food with you to Zilker Park on any night that you attend.

’Tis the season for giving, after all!

Plan Your Trip to the Trail.
