GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up- Tomorrow!

In an effort to help local food banks serve a growing number of Texas families, I ask all Texans to dine out on Wednesday, Oct. 1 as part of the GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up, presented by Farm Credit.

The inaugural event celebrates restaurants that serve fresh, local ingredients and quality Texas foods. I’m also proud to announce that many of the day’s proceeds will benefit Texas food banks in support of the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Texans Feeding Texans initiative. I will enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow at GO TEXAN Restaurants and hope other Texans will join me in doing the same.

I announced the GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up at a news conference today. You can watch the announcement, plus get a tour of the Capital Area Food Bank here:

In addition, the GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up serves to kick off Texas Wine Month in October.

Remember – Go Out, Go Eat, GO TEXAN.
