HOPE FM Needs Your Support!
This spring, we’re raising money to support our move to Plaza Saltillo and ongoing community outreach efforts, including a new Mobile Farm Stand and our SNAP/WIC Acceptance Program.
Things we need funds for this season:
- Site improvements at Plaza Saltillo, including a native plant garden and storage for tools and market supplies.
- Mobile Farm Stand design and construction, as well as seed money to get the project off the ground.
- SNAP/WIC Acceptance Program: in order for us to offer this community service, our staff works extra hard during the week collaborating with various organizations and spending time out and about raising awareness about healthy food access in East Austin.

This March, we’re excited to join forces with I Live Here, I Give Here to “Crank up the Giving” on Amplify Austin Day, March 4-5. Through this 24-hour online philanthropy campaign, Austinites are challenged to collectively donate a total of $1 million to over 300 local organizations. This day is modeled after largely successful campaigns in other cities across the country, and is a great way for local nonprofits to collaborate in their fundraising efforts.
Here’s how you can help:
- Mark your calendars for March 4-5 and plan on donating to HOPE FM that day.
- Mark those calendars again for March 5 (5-7pm), and plan to join us for Happy Hour at Center61. We share a workspace there with other participating organizations (Women.Design.Build, EcoRise, PeopleFund) and will be celebrating the day’s success with some free beer!
- Let your friends know that you support HOPE FM and encourage them to help if they can! The minimum donation is $25 which will go a long way in helping us increase access to healthy food in East Austin.
- Join us on Sunday, March 10 at our Grand Opening celebration of HOPE Farmers Market at Plaza Saltillo! 11am-3pm with 40+ vendors and live music by Whiskey Shivers!
