Austin restaurants continue to provide free food to Austinites in need thanks to the Austin Winter Storm Relief Fund. A joint effort between A Taste of Koko, 365 Things Austin, and MYLK Collective, the group has given back more than $30,000 to help support local restaurants and provide free meals to the public, Austin Public Health, EMS Workers and local hospitals and frontline workers in need. They continue to collect donations to support the community and will utilize any remaining funds to help restaurants get back on their feet post-thaw.
