Event Offers

$2,000 Give to Give

Come together to celebrate community by giving back to Caritas of Austin’s Community Kitchen Diners! Together with friends, family, or colleagues, you will have the opportunity to put together a celebration for 200+ diners as they enjoy a nutritious lunch in our Community Kitchen. You will leave a lasting impression with naming rights to the Community Kitchen for one quarter. 


  • Naming opportunity in the Community Kitchen for two months including signage and recognition on Caritas of Austin's media platforms 
  • Creating a custom themed menu with Caritas of Austin’s chef
  • Opportunity to decorate the dining hall
  • Option to bring in care packages or gifts for diners
  • Flexible timing and scheduling depending on current group-related restrictions


  • Current COVID-related restrictions limit volunteer support in our Community Kitchen to 3 people at a time. While you have one year to redeem the package, we will work with you on what makes the most sense for you and your guests—either setting up multiple small-group days in the kitchen, or holding off until your whole group can work together—we’ll be flexible to your needs!
