We would not exist today but for the community around us.
Our success is a product of the support given to us by our community and we are deeply committed to giving back by contributing our time, money, energy and food. We encourage our team members to be active participants in the local community by offering a multitude of volunteer and philanthropic opportunities to anyone who wishes to participate. We have a long and proud history of supporting local farmers and ranchers and sourcing ingredients from local suppliers because doing so both ensures a fresher product and contributes to the local economy on which our business is built. We also recognize our role as a citizen of the global community and we try to be good stewards for our environment by maintaining an active recycling and composting program, using energy efficient light bulbs and equipment and donating excess food to charity rather than allowing it to go waste.
At Kerbey Lane Cafe we thrive on the community that built us. Throughout our 30+ years in business we have always made it a priority to support the city of Austin and surrounding areas that have helped make us who we are. In order to fully support our mission, vision and goals we have created a Corporate Responsibility Plan that supports the kind of business we strive to be. Due to this we will only be able to donate, volunteer or fund raise for organizations in Travis County, where we are headquartered, that support the following areas:
Facilitate or promote healthy or sustainable food for the less fortunate.
Independent school districts and Early Childhood Centers.
Donations will ONLY be given in the form of gift cards or cash funds. We are no longer able to give food donations.
