Getting Faith Leaders together to share a Message of Unity – Jeneice Hall heard from her community that people needed a reminder of hope and caring for each other during COVID-19. She worked with faith leaders of various faith traditions to create something that truly spoke to her community. In partnership with Austin Public Health, COVID-19 Faith-Based Taskforce, Travis County Services for the Deaf, and the Austin/Travis County Faith community, they created this video, “Interfaith Message of Unity” to bring her community together during this time and beyond.

USDA Farmers to Families Food Box
As part of the CARES act, USDA will purchase and distribute up to $3 billion of agricultural products to those in need. USDA will partner with regional and local distributors, whose workforce has been significantly impacted by the closure of many restaurants, hotels, and other food service entities, to purchase fresh produce, dairy, and meat.
Non-profit and faith-based organizations may apply to be distributors – or may consider partnering with contracted entities which participate. Helpful information includes the Farmers to Families Food Box Program FAQs and How to Become a USDA Vendor. Also informational webinars are posted here.
